When asked what made him take such a bold step, the Thugs of Hindostan star stated, “It’s a very long story. If someday, a biopic is made on me, I will share the details then.” On asking who could play him onscreen, he said, “I think Junaid (his son) can do it. He might be a good choice.”
Aamir further went on to reveal that he and his family are on the hunt for a good script for Junaid’s big Bollywood debut. “He has studied acting and been doing theatre for over a year. But I believe in the power of screen test. So Junaid would have to go through the grind and prove himself.”
He continued, “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. 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,” concluded Aamir.
