Aamir Khan’s son Junaid has for long. been away from the limelight, doing theatre. Recent buzz suggested that the star kid is all set to make his acting debut with the Hindi remake of Malayalam film ‘Ishq’. However it has now been revealed that Junaid had indeed auditioned for the role but has unfortunately not got the part.
“It is not true that Junaid is making his film debut in the Hindi remake of Malayalam film, Ishq. In fact, he had auditioned for this role but did not get it. He has been giving auditions for various films for quite some time now, while acting in theatre plays. Aamir Khan has been very clear about not helping with anything,” a source had revealed.
Previously, while speaking about Junaid entering films, Aamir Khan had told PTI, “It is up to him (about making his film debut). He should lead his own life and take his own decisions. I don’t want to take it for him. I have left it all to him. He certainly has an inclination towards the creative world and towards filmmaking. He is following his path, he has studied theatre. He is actually more interested in theatre than films. I am allowing him to go and find his own path. That’s how it should be. He is very bright.” Interestingly, Junaid was the assistant director to Rajkumar Hirani, for Aamir Khan starrer ‘PK’.
