Actor Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan has not been feeling well since her medication was changed recently. Ira spoke about her struggle with mental health and was diagnosed with depression.
Ira took to Instagram on Saturday to share a 10-minute video, updating her followers on her condition. She said she has been feeling angry the past few days, an emotion she is not too familiar with. She said it left her embarrassed because she didn’t know how to handle her anger. Her psychiatrist, however, does not believe anger could be a side effect of the change in medication.
Ira also explained that she was unable to return home on Friday. She said she went to play soccer, but it didn’t improve things. As she drove her car, she realized how angry she was and how unfit to drive on her own. She called someone to pick her up. “I didn’t think I had to control a machine so I parked the car on the side of the road and asked someone to come and get me. And I just sobbed and sobbed and sobbed, ”she said.

Ira revealed in a video in October last year that she was diagnosed with clinical depression. “Hi, I’m depressed. I have been for over four years now. I have seen a doctor and am clinically depressed. I am 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 decided to take you on a trip, my trip, and see what happens. Hopefully we’ll get to know each other a little better, to understand mental illness better, “she said in the video.
She also expressed doubts about her ability to run a business. “I have ideas, I get excited and then I can’t necessarily implement them. Maybe I shouldn’t be running a business. I thought about the idea that maybe someone else should be running the business. And I should just… be there. Be the sensitivity filter, ”she added. At the end of her video, Ira shared an LA Salami song, Gets You Wondering, which made her smile.
