Junaid Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, is all set to make his acting debut in the Indian film industry. Following years of honing his craft, Junaid has signed on for a leading role in “Maharaj,” a historical drama produced by Yash Raj Films (YRF).

Maharaj to Premiere on Netflix in June 2024

The film, which takes inspiration from the infamous 1862 Maharaja Libel Case, completed filming in October 2023. Shortly after, YRF announced a strategic partnership with Netflix for the film’s release. According to a reliable source close to the production, “Maharaj” is now confirmed to premiere on Netflix on June 14, 2024.

Targeted Marketing Campaign for Digital Release

The source revealed YRF and Aditya Chopra, the production house’s head honcho, have high confidence in “Maharaj” and believe Netflix will provide the film with a global audience. To capitalize on the platform’s reach, a focused marketing campaign is planned. The source further elaborated that a trailer for “Maharaj” will be launched around June 5th, followed by a brief nine-day period before the film’s premiere. This strategic approach emphasizes the film’s content as the driving force for audience engagement after release.

Maharaj Marks YRF’s Third Direct-to-Digital Release

Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, known for helming Rani Mukerji’s “Hichki,” “Maharaj” also features actors Sharvari, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Shalini Pandey in pivotal roles. The film marks YRF’s third direct-to-digital project, following the releases of “Romantics” and “The Railway Men” on streaming platforms. In “Maharaj,” Junaid portrays a tenacious journalist who challenges authority figures. Beyond his debut, Junaid also has the upcoming remake of “Love Today” lined up for release, a project produced by his father, Aamir Khan.

YRF Yet to Respond to Inquiries

While efforts were made to reach YRF for comment, the production house remains unavailable at this time.
