Aamir Khan‘s daughter Ira Khan recently made a shocking revelation about her mental health. She said that she has been suffering from depression for the past four years and she has been diagnosed as clinically depressed. She also said that she wanted to share her journey with her followers but she didn’t know how, so she picked the occasion of World Mental Health Day to start a conversation.
Ira took to her Instagram account and shared a video where she is seen talking about suffering from depression. Ira said, “Hi, I’m depressed. I have been for more than four years now. I’ve been to a doctor and I’m clinically depressed. I’m doing much better now. For over a year now, I wanted to do something for mental health, but I wasn’t sure what to do. So, I have decided to take you on a journey, my journey, and see what happens. Hopefully, we will get to know ourselves slightly better, understand mental illness better.”
The caption of the post read, “A lot has been going on, a lot of people have a lot to say. Things are really confusing and stressful and simple and okay but not okay and… life all together. There’s no way to say it all in one go. But I’d like to think I’ve figured some stuff out, or at least figured out how to make it slightly more understandable. About mental health and mental ill-health. So come with me on this journey… in my awkward, quirky, sometimes-baby-voice-y, as-honest-as-I-can-be… way. Let’s start a conversation. Happy World Mental Health Day.(sic)”

Unlike most star kids Ira has gone down the Road of direction instead of acting. She had directed a play so far amongst other projects.
