Maharaja starring Aamir Khan's son Junaid Khan goes on floor
Aamir Khan's child Junaid Khan's debut film Maharaja on Tuesday goes on floor after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray permitted to film and TV shoots in Mumbai, keeping Covid-19 security rules and safeguards set up.
As the Maharashtra government has facilitated lockdown limitations, movies and TV shoots are gradually continuing in Mumbai. One of the primary motion pictures to go on floors is Aamir Khan's child Junaid Khan debut film Maharaja. Junaid began shooting the film today. As per sources, the shoot started with the film's essential cast, 25 junior artists and select team individuals.
“On Sunday, over 100-plus cast and crew members, including those who have taken the first dose of the vaccine, underwent RT-PCR test. Of the people who tested negative, only 25 junior artistes have been summoned to the set, along with the main cast. Only a few key members of the production team have been asked to join in. The idea is to keep the on-set team to the bare minimum,” a source said.
The development comes after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday granted permission to shoot films and shows in Mumbai. Thackeray said film and TV producers need to follow all COVID-19 safety rules and take precautions during the shoots. “We should ensure that we do not get knocked down by the virus,” he said.
Maharaja’s story is reportedly based on the infamous 1862 Maharaja Libel Case.
Apart from Junaid Khan, the film will star Shalini Pandey, Sharvari Wagh and Jaideep Ahlawat in pivotal roles.
