During an interview with ANI, Junaid Khan revealed that his father, Aamir Khan watched ‘Maharaj’ a while ago. The debutante talked about Aamir’s reaction to ‘Maharaj’ and stated, “He liked the film. He saw the film a few months ago and he quite liked it.”
Junaid Khan also discussed how he gets feedback from Aamir Khan. He shared, “He normally lets us do what we want to do unless we ask for something very specific; then he gives advice.” Junaid Khan further expressed his feelings after the success of ‘Maharaj’ and shared that he is quite “grateful” for the audience’s positive response to the film. “So yeah, it’s quite satisfying; I guess all’s well that ends well,” he said.
