Film actors' kin and kith hitting silver screens is nothing new. While many young persons, who take their fathers as inspiration, and entertain the audience on screen, only a few children of film stars choose to learn the art of film making and choose to show their world through camera lens. One of them is Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan's son Junaid, who is just 17-year-old guy. Junaid will be assisting director Raj Kumar Hirani on his next film casting Aamir Khan as the protagonist.
For Junaid, this project is obviously ambitious one as it happens to be his debut work in Indian Cinema. The inside sources said that Raj Kumar Hirani has named the film as Peekay. If buzz is to be believed, Yash Raj Productions' favourite actress, Anushka Sharma will play the female lead in the movie. The sources have also said that it was Junaid's sole interest to enter film world. It was reportedly Mr. Hirani who offered him to assist in direction after he noticed the interest of Junaid. And Junaid apparently convinced his father Aamir Khan that he be allowed to be an assistant director of the film after he promised that he wouldn't neglect the studies.
Once actor Anil Kapoor's daughter too tried her hands in direction department before she hit the screen. Lets hope that Junaid will not shift to acting department in near future as Indian Cinema will really lose a good director whenever someone from direction department hops to acting.
