Now for some exciting news! Aamir Khan's son Junaid Khan stepping into the world of acting is sure to draw attention. Junaid Khan who is all set to make his acting debut with Maharaj will premiere on Netflix on June 14. Other than Junaid, the film also stars Jaideep Ahlawat and Shalini Pandey with Sharvari Wagh in a guest appearance. On May 29, the makers of the upcoming film released the first look poster on Instagram, along with the release date.

"Maharaj" seems to be delving into some intriguing themes, particularly focusing on Karsandas Mulji's acts of bravery. The combination of Netflix and Yash Raj Films promises a quality production, and it's exciting to see Junaid Khan stepping into the spotlight with his acting debut. A story based on a libel case with a lot of drama and suspense is set in 1862, a time when there were only three universities in India. The film's official logline reads, “Rabindranath Tagore is a year old and the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 continues to fan the flames of independence. Against all odds, one man takes a courageous stand in a landmark legal battle, a true story that’s now come to light in Maharaj - more than 160 years later."

Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, ‘Maharaj’ is about Karsandas Mulji, a journalist and social reformer, who was a pioneering advocate for women’s rights and social reform. A student at Elphinstone College in Mumbai and a protégé of the scholar-leader Dadabhai Naoroji, he wrote on widow remarriage, stood up for the oppressed, and sowed the seeds of reform in society.

Based on true events - Maharaj is releasing on 14 June, only on Netflix showcasing the fight for the truth between a powerful man and a fearless journalist.
