‘Maharaj’ is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and bankrolled by Aditya Chopra under the YRF Entertainment banner.

The makers of the much-anticipated film ‘Maharaj’, which marks Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan’s acting debut, have finally revealed the period drama’s release date.

Taking to Instagram, director Siddharth P Malhotra shared the first look poster and captioned it, “The fight for the truth between a powerful man and a fearless journalist. Based on true events – Maharaj is releasing on 14 June, only on Netflix! My next film as a director please give it all the love.”


The poster features Jaideep Ahlawat and Junaid Khan.

In the film, Junaid portrays a journalist. ‘Maharaj’ is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Aditya Chopra under the YRF Entertainment banner. The film also features Jaideep Ahlawat, Sharvari, and Shalini Pandey.

The film is set in 1862, when there were just three universities in India. The film’s official logline says, “Rabindranath Tagore is a year old and the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 continues to fan the flames of independence. Against all odds, one man takes a courageous stand in a landmark legal battle, a true story that’s now come to light in Maharaj — more than 160 years later.”

Karsandas Mulji, a journalist and social reformer, was an early campaigner for women’s rights and social change.

As a student at Elphinstone College in Mumbai and a protege of scholar-leader Dadabhai Naoroji, he wrote on widow remarriage, spoke for the underprivileged, and planted the seeds of social reform.

In ‘Maharaj’, which premieres on June 14, Netflix and Yash Raj Films highlight Karsandas Mulji’s daring acts. Based on the libel lawsuit, the film introduces audiences to Junaid Khan, who makes his acting debut. Maharaj is set to be released on Netflix on June 14.
