Junaid Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, has finally entered the world of Hindi cinema. This year marked his debut with the film Maharaj, directed by Siddharth P Malhotra. However, the road to release wasn’t smooth sailing. The movie sparked controversy, causing a temporary hold-up, before finally reaching audiences. In a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, his first interview post the release of the movie, the actor talked about the case which led to the delay of the release.

EXCLUSIVE: Junaid Khan on Maharaj’s court issue that delayed the release: “We were all on edge a little bit”

Junaid Khan stated, “We were all on edge a little bit, I think. But there was a lot of faith in the film from all of us and people who have seen the film.”

The actor also said that people who had watched the film before the release acknowledged that everything was handled sensitively. “That faith was always there from Yash Raj Films and Netflix. That gave us some courage,” he concluded.

Maharaj follows the story of Karsandas Mulji, a journalist and social reformer, played by Junaid Khan. The film delves into the sensitive topic of the 1862 Maharaj Libel Case, a landmark legal battle that addressed social issues in pre-independence India.

The controversy surrounding the film arose when the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), a Hindu nationalist organization, raised objections. The details of their concerns remain unclear, but reports suggest they might have centered on the film’s portrayal of a religious figure or the historical accuracy of the events depicted.
