Junaid is more interested in theatre than films, says Aamir Khan

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

has said that his son is currently more interested in doing theatre and he supports his decision.

Junaid, Aamir's elder child from his previous marriage to Reena Dutta, has worked as an on Rajkumar Hirani's "PK", which featured the superstar in the lead.

"It is up to him (about making his film debut). He should lead his own life and take his own decisions. I don't want to take it for him. I have left it all to him. He certainly has an inclination towards the creative world and towards filmmaking.

"He is following his path, he has studied theatre. He is actually more interested in theatre than films. I am allowing him to go and find his own path. That's how it should be. He is very bright," said in an interview here.

The superstar once again made it clear that if wants to venture in to as an actor, then he will have to follow the proper process and give audition for roles.

"If I feel there is something that I got and if he (Junaid) fits in, then only (I will cast him)... He will have to go through a casting process. He hasn't audition for anything," said.

Talking about his eight-year-old son Azad, the "Thugs of Hindostan" star said he has started spending more time with him.

"Kiran had told me two-three years ago that I don't care for them and she was not saying it in a complaining way and that is important to understand. One thing changed after that is I started coming home by 6 pm. From 6 pm to 8 pm I'm with and then after 8 pm I again start work. But those two hours we are together I read to him, talk, etc.
