Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira has stated that she is struggling with depression.
“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.” she wrote.
Ira revealed that she has been depressed for more than four years, in the video.
“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.” she said
She ended the short video by asking the question she had asked at the beginning; “What do I have to be depressed about? Who am I to be depressed? I have everything, right?”
