Although Laal Singh Chaddha is his most significant project right now, you can expect Aamir Khan to be as active in his other projects. He travelled to Rajasthan in early May to film a cameo for his production, Pritam Pyare, which is headlined by actor-son Junaid Khan. The web series premiered in Lucknow, followed by a run in the desert state's Jhunjhunu area.

According to reports, the film is being directed by one of Aamir Khan's associates. A source told Mid Day that on May 1, Aamir joined Junaid and the team in Rajasthan. During the week, he shot a song and some hospital scenes in Bagar. Aamir, Junaid, and co-star Sanjay Mishra shot their scenes near the Grand Haveli and Resort, a heritage property in Nawalgarh. 

The source also said that some scenes were also canned outside the city's Koolwal Kothi hotel. The superstar's appearance is said to have influenced the plot of the eccentric small-town thriller. Aside from the online series, Junaid is working on Maharaja, his Bollywood debut.

Earlier, during an interaction with News18, Aamir had spoken about Junaid making his acting debut. He had said that Junaid was about to start his career. The superstar has always told his children that he would help them learn everything they wanted. Junaid once contacted him and expressed his desire to learn theatre. Aamir asked him whether he was interested in movies, and he replied that while he was, he was more interested in theatres and wanted to learn more about them. He then went to a theatre school in Los Angeles, where he was mentored for two years before working at a company for another year. He then returned to Bombay and performed in approximately five to six plays throughout the city.

Aamir went on to say that Junaid would go anywhere if there was a screen test for a film's casting. He went to Mira Nair's A Suitable Boy screen test but was not chosen. He never stated to anyone that he was my son. That is neither Aamir's nor Junaid's nature. As a result, he embarked on his own trip. He studied theatre, performed in plays, and was turned down by 15-20 companies.

Junaid eventually got a film with Yashraj Films. Aditya Chopra happened to see one of his screen tests and liked it enough to offer him a script. Despite the fact that the screen test was not for one of his films, Chopra admired Junaid as an actor and decided to work with him. The ace filmmaker called Aamir one day to say he had a role for Junaid, but the actor told Chopra to speak directly with Junaid because he makes his own decisions. Junaid then listened to the screenplay and performed a screen test for the character, and was cast. So it makes Aamir pleased to think that Junaid was on his own path from the start.
