B-town bacchas (kids) are following the footsteps of their parents, be it Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan, or Chunkey Pandey’s daughter Ananya Pandey, who is making her debut with STUDENT OF THE YEAR 2!
While Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi and Khushi are strong contenders as they are gearing up for Bollywood.
And now as per reports, Aamir Khan’s 17 years old son Junaid has been recruited to assist Raj Kumar Hirani on his next project PEEKAY, starring his father and Anushka Sharma
While Aamir and Hirani remained unavailable for comment, a source close to the film confirmed the story to TOI and revealed, it was the director who offered the 17-year-old Khan a chance to work on the project. Initially taken aback, Junaid convinced his father and promised not to neglect his studies.
In fact, he has already begun his work. A source close to the film revealed that Junaid has been traveling across the country scouting for suitable locations for the shoot. The film is scheduled to go on floors later this year.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who had always been close to Aamir and Hirani and is a presenter for PEEKAY, had also been impressed by Junaid's eye for detail. Apparently, Jr Khan's knowledge of camera angles and ear for music had awed Chopra.
On work front Aamir Khan is gearing up for the release of SECRET SUPERSTAR.
