With the recent rush of biopics being made in Bollywood, it is certainly a question that who from the current generation would get to play the top three Khans if there’s ever a biopic made on their lives. Aamir Khan feels that his son – Junaid Khan – is the best choice to play him on screen.
While promoting his recent production venture – Rubaru Roshni – during a recent meet-up with the media, Aamir spoke about how he eloped with Reena at the time of his first marriage. When asked what made him take such a bold step, the actor said with a smile, “It’s a very long story. If someday a biopic is made on me, I will share the details then.”
This was followed by a question about who could reprise his role in his biopic. “I think Junaid (his son) can do it. He might be a good choice,” he replied.
The actor also shared that the family is on the lookout for a good script for Junaid Khan’s big Bollywood debut.
“He has studied acting and has been doing theatre for more than a year. But I believe in the power of screen test. So Junaid would have to go through the grind and prove himself. As a father, my only advice to him is that he should play leads but only those that are characters. This is a rule I follow and really believe in. More than being a hero, you need to live a character on screen. That’s the joy of acting,” he said.
“In my three decades in the industry, no fan has ever called out to me by my name in public. It has always been the last character that I have played on screen. I really feel good about it. That shows that my characters have left a mark,” Aamir added.
On the work front, Aamir Khan is currently busy preparing for his next ambitious project, Mahabharat.
