Junaid Khan, Aamir Khan's son, was expected to appear in Aamir Khan’s production Pritam Pyare. According to a recent source, Junaid will not be a part of Pritam Pyare's lead cast. Junaid instead would work on the film's creative side. Reports refuted rumors about Junaid starring in Aamir's film. A source close to the development told PeepingMoon.com: “Pritam Pyare is a quirky small-town story about two brothers, Pritam and Pyare. Junaid is not a part of the cast, as rumored in the media. It’s a small film with a big heart and an influential cameo by Aamir. He shot for his special appearance during the film’s Rajasthan schedule last month."
The source added that the “film is currently being shot in a Mumbai studio and will be wrapped up by this month-end."
Earlier, in an interview, Aamir had opened up about Junaid being interested in films. “Junaid will be entering the industry soon. I have always told my kids that I will support them in whatever they wish to learn. Once, Junaid approached me and said that he wants to learn theatre. I asked him whether he has any interests in films, to which he answered that while he has an interest in films, he is more interested in theatres and wants to learn that;” said Aamir Khan.
Sanjay Mishra and Neeraj Sood star play the key roles of Pritam Pyare. Sunil Pandey will make his directorial debut with the film. Sunil has been affiliated with Aamir's label for the past 15 years and has assisted on films since then.
