Actor-producer Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan is set to make his acting debut with the upcoming YRF Entertainment-backed Netflix film Maharaj, the streamer announced on Thursday, dropping the first poster of the movie.

“A powerful man with secrets to hide. A journalist’s fight to uncover the truth,” Netflix’s official Instagram page wrote alongside the poster.


According to the streamer, “Maharaj, an incredible David vs Goliath story set in the 1800s, is about how a regular man, journalist by profession, takes on a powerful role-model of society, hailed by many as a messiah for the masses. The fearless reporter uncovers a series of incidents that shake the very foundation of society.”

Also featuring Jaideep Ahlawat, Sharvari and Shalini Pandey, the film is directed by Hichki director Siddharth P. Malhotra. While the film has been confirmed to be Junaid’s debut, the release date is yet to be revealed by the makers.

Maharaj marks Netflix's second collaboration with YRF Entertainment, the first being the historical drama series The Railway Men. The Railway Men recently marked its 100-days on the streaming platform. It has notably been trending on the top 10 series list in India since its premiere in November last year. Maharaj is also inspired by true events.
