Aamir Khan has often talked about his kids being interested in following his footsteps. Though Ira is making her own name and working on projects behind the screen currently, reports suggest that her brother Junaid is all set to make his big Bollywood debut with none other than Aditya Chopra's production.
A report in Bollywood Hungama revealed that after several rounds of auditions, Aditya Chopra has zeroed in on Aamir Khan's son for his next project. A source told the portal, "Aditya Chopra always keeps an eye on young talents, and his banner is affiliated with few of the stars of renowned actors today like Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Ayushmann Khurrana, Parineeti Chopra to name some. He was on the look out to launch a newcomer in one of his upcoming production ventures and after several rounds of audition, he decided on Aamir Khan's son, Junaid."
Junaid Went Through Several Audition Rounds
The report also states that Junaid went through several auditions just as others, since Adi is a firm believer of supporting the right talent and a thorough professional. "Aamir has always been vocal about how his son should create his own path, and hence, he left it to Junaid to audition and bag a film based on his own talent. Junaid has been working as a theatre actor for quite some time now, and has even been an assistant director on several Bollywood films to understand the craft better," the source reportedly shared.
Junaid Is Working On Honing His Acting Skills
While all details about the project are under wraps, Junaid is currently attending his acting workshops daily and is working hard to brush up his acting skills. The report added the source as saying, "The film may or may not be a part of YRF Project 50. It's all confidential and will be unveiled at the right time."
Ira Often Works On Projects Behind The Camera
Yash Raj Films recently revealed major projects including Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer sequel Tiger 3, and Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone's Pathan. The official announcements are yet to be made and fans are waiting for Aditya Chopra to share more details about the huge projects.
