Junaid Khan about family support

He said, "We don’t really talk about films so much. But I know that Ira (my sister) unconditionally supports me. I'm blessed because I come from a very supportive family. Also, they don't shy away from saying it like it is. Even Papa (Aamir) will say, 'Look, I feel this, but you should do what you want.' The same is with mom. So, yeah, I think everybody is very supportive and very encouraging even in their criticism.”

Junaid on Aamir’s unique acting style

Junaid also responded to a question about his height gap with Aamir and how his acting technique differs from his father's. He continued, “I guess that is a compliment (laughs). No, I don't know how to answer that in the sense that it's not necessarily a conscious thing. I guess as performers, we're all different. He's a fantastic actor. A lot of times, between two of his own films, you would not be able to tell it's the same person. So, yes, we are very different as performers.”

About Maharaj

Junaid played Karsandas Mulji, a social reformer, in the film Maharaj. Maharaj digs into the 1862 Maharaj Libel Case, one of India's most famous judicial battles, and focuses on the life of Karsanda. The film, directed by Sidharth P Malhotra and produced by Yash Raj Films (YRF) Entertainment, also stars Jaideep Ahlawat, Shalini Pandey, and Sharvari. Maharaj is currently available on Netflix.

Recently speaking with news agency ANI, Junaid opened up about how he was inspired by the story of Karsandas Mulji. "He was a real person who in 1862 was talking about those things which even today are happening. It happens in society today. And it happens in every society. And at that time, he was fighting about it. When we didn't have that much knowledge. So, I found the character and the story very inspirational. That there is a man who had so much understanding back then," he had said.
