Mumbai (Maharashtra):

With the release of the historical drama Maharaj on Friday, Aamir Khan's son Junaid Khan, who debuted in the film, shared his feelings about the overwhelming positive feedback.

"I cannot explain in words what I'm feeling right now. Maharaj has been a long and wild journey for me, but all's well that ends well I guess," Junaid said.

"Maharaj was made with a lot of love, respect, and passion, and I'm glad that the film and my performance are striking a chord with the audience at large," he added.

Reflecting on his future in cinema, Junaid said, "I know I have miles to go and lots to improve upon. I just hope I get a cast and crew as supportive in all my future work."

Earlier on Friday, the Gujarat High Court lifted its temporary stay on the release of the film.

Following the decision, YRF took to its official Instagram handle to post a statement expressing its gratitude.

"Yash Raj Films has a 50-year-old legacy of championing India, its stories, its people, culture & heritage. We have never produced a film that tarnished the reputation of our country or our countrymen," it added.
