Aamir Khan’s son Junaid is interested in acting as well as direction, while Ira is drawn to the film industry as well. The actor revealed, “I think Junaid wants to be in films. He wants to act, he also wants to direct and make a film. I warned him that he has chosen a tough path. He happens to be my son and there will always be comparisons. It’ll be probably tougher for him.”
Aamir emphasised that though he is supportive of Junaid’s dreams, he will be brutally honest if his son is not a good actor. He added that he will not “actively do anything to support” Junaid if he is not deserving.
“When he said that he wanted to go and train as an actor, the first thing I said was, ‘Look, you should follow your heart and do what you want. But when the time comes for you to take your first step as an actor, if I feel that you are not good enough, I will tell you that on your face and I won’t actively do anything to support you.’ Because that will be unfair for the film and it will be unfair for the audience,” Aamir said.
Aamir thinks his daughter Ira is interested in a career in films, as well. “I’m not quite sure what she has in mind but I suspect that she likes the world of cinema and filmmaking. So maybe that’s where she would want to go, I don’t know,” he said.
