Junaid Khan Reacts To Aamir Khan’s Comment About Him Travelling By Bus Instead Of A Car: “Papa Makes A Big Deal…”

Junaid Khan, who grabbed eyeballs with his debut performance in Maharaj, recently responded to his father’s comment about him travelling by bus or any other public transport instead of his own car. In an interview with Connect Cine, Junaid Khan said, “Papa makes a big deal out of small things. I just travel the most efficient way of traveling. I often take rickshaws in Mumbai because it is easier to get around and not worry about parking.” In an earlier interview, Aamir Khan said that Junaid doesn’t allow him to buy a car for him as he prefers public transports to his own car.

In an interview with ANI, Junaid Khan shared father Aamir Khan’s reaction to his performance in Maharaj. “He normally lets us do what we want to do unless we ask for something very specific; then he gives advice. But he liked the film. He saw the film a few months ago and he quite liked it,” Junaid added.

Maharaj explores the historic 1862 Maharaj Libel Case, a pivotal legal battle in India, focusing on the influential figure of social reformer Karsandas Mulji. The film, directed by Sidharth P Malhotra and produced by Yash Raj Films (YRF) Entertainment, also features Jaideep Ahlawat and Shalini Pandey, with a special appearance by Sharvari.

In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, “Maharaj is more intent on creating a dense sensory experience than on evoking distress and disgust at, and disdain for, the depredations that humanity is often subjected to in the name of organised religion.”
