Battling with mental health
On World Mental Health Day the 23-year-old revealed her battle with clinical depression and how being a celebrity doesn’t make the illness any less grave. She shared a 10-minute video on Instagram, wherein she highlighted that her parents’ divorce and a traumatizing sexual assault in her teenage years made it difficult for her to open up while growing up.
On the Bollywood front, unlike her father Aamir Khan, Ira depicts no interest in acting. In fact, Ira has already marked her directorial debut with a theatrical adaption of Euripides’ Medea starring Hazel Keech alongside her brother Junaid Khan in the lead role. It was premiered in several cities all over India in 2019 and even garnered positive responses from the audience.
