It is not uncommon for children to walk in the footsteps of their parents and continue their acting career. At Karan Johar's chat, Aamir Khan revealed that his children, Junaid and Ira, would be happy to go to Bollywood.
The actor revealed: "I think that Junaid wants to be in the movies, wants to act, wants to make and shoot a film, warned him that he chose a difficult path, is my son and will always be comparisons, probably will be more difficult for him.
Aamir stressed that although he supports Junaid's dreams, he will be brutally honest if his son is not a good actor. He added that he would not "actively do anything to support" Junaid, if he did not deserve it.
"When he said he wanted to go and train as an actor, the first thing I said was," Listen, you should follow your heart and do what you want. "But when the time comes to take the first step of the actor, if I feel you are not good enough, I will tell you in front of you and I will not actively do anything to help you, because it will be unfair to the film and will be unfair to the public." – Aamir said.
"If you're good, you'll get a chance, maybe from me, maybe from others. That also applies to Ira," he said.
Aamir thinks his daughter Ira is also interested in a career in movies. "I'm not quite sure what she means, but I suspect that she likes the world of cinema and filming, so maybe she would like to go there, I do not know," he said.
At the workplace, Aamir is preparing to release Thija Of Hindostan, Vijay Krishna Acharya. The action-adventure film, which also features Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, is to hit theaters on November 8th.
