Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan took to her social media handle to open up about her struggles with depression on the occasion of World Mental Health Day. Ira shared a video of herself revealing that she has been clinically depressed for more than 4 years now.

Her video was accompanied by a strong worded note, which 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.”

In the video Ira shares, ‘Hi I am 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.”

She added, “Let’s start from where I started. What do I have to be depressed about? Who am I to be depressed? I have everything, right?”

Ira is the younger daughter among Aamir Khan’s two children with ex-wife Reena Dutta. On the work front, she made her directorial debut with a theatrical adaptation of Euripides’ Medea, featuring Hazel Keech in the titular role which premiered in December last year. Hazel, who starred in Ira’s first play wrote, “Proud of you Tich.”
