When asked Padamsee about Junaid’s casting, he said “It was an open casting call and someone had given him my number. When he came, I thought he was just another kid from HR College. He said he had been to drama school and seemed to understand the play and had lovely ideas,”Padamsee is certain that Aamir’s son has promise, and is, most impressively, “an enterprising actor”. “He is a very giving actor, so his co-actors gain a lot from him. He cares a lot about the whole production and not just his own part, and is constantly contributing and working on all aspects.”
