Aamir Khan has said that his son Junaid Khan is currently more interested in doing theatre.
Junaid, Khan’s elder child from his previous marriage to Reena Dutta, has worked as an assistant director on Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘PK’, which featured the Bollywood superstar in the lead.
“It is up to him [about making his film debut]. He should lead his own life and take his own decisions. I don’t want to take it for him. I have left it all to him. He certainly has an inclination towards the creative world and towards filmmaking,” said Khan.
“He is following his path, he has studied theatre. He is actually more interested in theatre than films. I am allowing him to go and find his own path. That’s how it should be. He is very bright,” added Khan.
The superstar once again made it clear that if Junaid wants to venture in to Bollywood as an actor, then he will have to follow the proper process and give audition for roles.
“If I feel there is something that I got and if [Junaid] fits in, then only [I will cast him]. He will have to go through a casting process. He hasn’t auditioned for anything,” said Khan.
Talking about his eight-year-old son Azad, the ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ star said he has started spending more time with him.
“Kiran had told me two-three years ago that I don’t care for them and she was not saying it in a complaining way and that is important to understand. One thing changed after that is I started coming home by 6pm. From 6pm to 8pm I’m with Azad and then after 8pm I again start work. But those two hours we are together I read to him, talk, etc,” said Khan.
