Everyone has been eyeing Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan’s big Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Film’s ambitious drama, Maharaj. It was just a couple of days back that Pinkvilla exclusively informed you about the show's release date. Now, confirming the same, makers have dropped the first look poster with an official announcement.

First look poster of Junaid Khan and Jaideep Ahlawat's film, Maharaj out

Pinkvilla exclusively reported that Aamir Khan’s son Junaid’s debut film, Maharaj will premiere on Netflix from June 16, 2024. Today, on May 29, the streaming platform took to their social media handle and dropped the first look poster of the film featuring Jaideep Ahlawat and Junaid Khan.

“The fight for the truth between a powerful man and a fearless journalist. Based on true events - Maharaj is releasing on 14 June, only on Netflix!,” read the caption alongside the post. It goes without saying that both the actors look unrecognizable in the period drama.

Jaideep donning the role of a king is seen standing against the backdrop of his lavish palace. Meanwhile, Junaid in contrast to him has a newspaper in the background that reads, “Supreme Court Of Bombay.” The theme of the poster clearly suggests that the two will be seen locking horns with each other in the film.

A user wrote, “All junaid is love,” another fan commented, “This iss outstanding!,” while a third fan exclaimed, “Junaid Khan in the building,” while another fan exclaimed, “Omg!! Cant wait for Junaid khan debut,” and another chimed in, “All Eyes On Junaid Khan.”
