Mumbai : Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir Khan has that his son Junaid is currently more interested in doing theatre and he supports his decision. He is Aamir’s elder child with his first wife Reena Dutta.
Junaid has worked as an assistant director on Rajkumar Hirani’s PK, which featured the Bollywood superstar in the lead. “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,”. Aamir has told in an interview.
“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 hiis own path. That’s how it should be. He is very bright,” the actor added.
The Dangal actor went on to say that if Junaid wants to try his acting skills in Bollywood, then he will have to follow the proper process and give audition for roles. “If I feel there is something that I got and if he (Junaid) fits in, then only (I will cast him)… He will have to go through a casting process. He hasn’t audition for anything,” Aamir said.
The actor got candid about his younger son Azad, by revealing that he has started spending more time with him. “Kiran had told me two-three years ago that I don’t care for them and she was not saying it in a complaining way and that is important to understand. One thing changed after that is I started coming home by 6 pm. From 6 pm to 8 pm I’m with Azad and then after 8 pm I again start work. But those two hours we are together I read to him, talk, etc.”
