Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan believes that if a film ever gets made on him, the best choice of actor to play him onscreen is Junaid, his own son.

The actor recently spoke to a few journalists about his next production Rubaru Roshni. The documentary film is directed by Svati Chakravarty Bhatkal and showcases three stories of forgiveness. Speaking of his collaboration with Svati, Aamir shared, “We go back a long time. Svati is married to Satya, my friend from school. The two were also witnesses to my marriage with Reena, when we had eloped. It was the most budget-friendly wedding. I think I had spent only Rs 10 on it. My parents had no clue about it for a long time.”

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.
