Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Junaid Khan’s debut movie Maharaj is the story of an “unsung hero" and a "chapter in history" that has not been explored yet. Despite facing initial roadblocks, the film was finally released on Netflix on June 21.

Cinema buffs were quick to watch the movie and heap praise on the cast, which included Jaideep Ahlawat. When the paparazzi spotted Nupur Shikhare, husband of Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan, they questioned him about Junaid’s debut film.

When asked by the paparazzi in Marathi if he watched Maharaj, Nupur responded positively with a smile. The celebrity fitness trainer further added, “Mala avadli, of course (I liked it, of course)” on being quizzed about the movie.

Junaid and Siddharth were in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla to talk about the film and share experiences while working on it. During the chat, Khan stated that people don’t know much about his historical character Karsandas Mulji’s personality.

“It's not really there in the public domain. But what we do have is his writings, his articles, and his own newspaper. He wrote for other newspapers, including Dadabhai Naoroji's Rast Goftar,” Khan stated.

He added, “That's actually exciting because you actually get to learn about a person on how they express themselves.” Junaid also heaped praise on the film's co-writers, Vipul Mehta, and Sneha Desai, for doing an incredible job of creating such a powerful and impactful personality in his character based on his writings.
