Thakore Padamsee recalls how he received a call from a teenager keen on auditioning for Mother Courage and Her Children, the latter’s adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s biting satire on the irrationality of war.

While talking to Mumbai Mirror, director Padamsee 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. You want people to come in excited and rehearse for 8 to 10 hours. And Junaid was damm happy to come in early or stay late, even if it was not for his own part.”

After Junaid completed his graduation from HR College, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a course at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and on his return, assisted director Rajkumar Hirani for PK. Junaid will play various characters, most prominently, that of Mother Courage’s son called Swameed, a man who has many virtues but is limited by his naivete.

Padamsee says, “He is a very giving actor, so his co-actors gain a lot from him. He cares a lot about the entire production team and not just his own part, and is constantly contributing and working on all aspects.”
