Actor Aamir Khan’s son elder son - Junaid Khan is all set to venture into Bollywood with his debut film Maharaja which goes on the floors today. The young actor already has a theatre background, but he will be facing the camera for the first time.

In her post, Ira penned a note for her brother as she mentioned that Junaid has worked in her play and his professionalism is unparalleled.
Her note read, “Junnuu! This wasn't his first play or his first show or our first play together but.. today is his first day! Of shoot. And I love this picture. He's been acting for a few years now but its still new for me. He even acted my play so I should be over it... but I've been his younger sister longer than any of the other things.”
She further added, “His professionalism is unparalleled. I'm super excited for him. Can't wait till he blows everyone away. And irritates them a little with his properness (HE REFUSES TO TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT THE FILM. SO IRRITATING. I WANT INSIDE SCOOP) and then I can go to set and embarrass and trouble him! #proud #excited #bigbrother #firstday #shoot.”
