Today, PeepingMoon had exclusively informed its readers that Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan is going to make his Bollywood debut under the 50-year-old banner of Yash Raj Films! Junaid will star in a YRF historical that will be directed by Siddharth P Malhotra. Malhotra's film is said to be based on a true event. It was also said that the theatre actor was not selected in the remake of the Malayalam film, Ishq. However, the news is untrue! We hear that Junaid was never in the running for the role and was not approached.
Now, according to the latest report, Bandish Bandit fame Ritwik Bhowmik has been roped in for Neeraj Pandey's Hindi remake. He is said to have cleared the auditions and is said to be signing the deal soon.
Earlier, while speaking about Junaid entering films, Aamir had told a news agency, “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."
For the unversed, Junaid has done theatre for nearly 3 years now and is looking forward to making his big Bollywood debut.
