Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan to make a debut as a journalist in ‘Maharaja’
Junaid Khan to make debut with Yash Raj’s Maharaja, which will go on floors February next year.
Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan is gearing to make his Bollywood debut under the YRF banner. Junaid is set to play the role of journalist Karsandas Mulji. According to the reports a massive set is under construction for the upcoming film titled ‘Maharaja.’
Envisioned as a big-budget drama, the film is based on the 1862 Maharaj Libel Case. The Maharaj had filed a case against Mulji for publishing an article probing the values of a Hindu known as the Vallabhacharya Sampradaya. The article was claimed vilifying and the entire framework process of the sect was also based on male devotees who offered their wives to have sex with the religious leaders to prove their devotion.
Further, the makers are building the sets for the project in Madh Island. The period drama is expected to go on floors in February next year.
