‘Not bothered by what people say and not looking for advice,’ says Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira on how to handle depression


Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira Khan has said that she isn’t bothered about what people say as she believes in giving them the benefit of the doubt. Ira, who recently revealed in a social media post that she is clinically depressed, said that she wants to make informative videos about her story for her fans and followers.

In her latest video, Ira spoke about creating a safe place for people to ‘ask the inaskable, the weird, the uncomfortable or the obvious. No judgement.” She said that she does not need advice on how to handle her condition, since she has doctors and a support system for that already. She said, “I don’t really get bothered by what people say, in the sense that, from before and now, after my depression, I give people the benefit of the doubt. A lot of people say things that they don’t mean, sometimes because they don’t know. And I find that only when you create a safe space for people to ask the questions that they want to ask, to contradict you when you say something, to see why you’re saying what you’re saying... is when you get somewhere.”

She captioned her post, “Thank you for all the encouraging comments but let’s discuss. Tell me what you agree with, what you disagree with, what your opinions are. As long as you aren’t trying to hurt someone, let’s ask the inaskable, the weird, the uncomfortable or the obvious. No judgement.”

On World Mental Health Day, Ira took to social media to share her struggle with depression and offered help to others as well to come out and talk about mental health.
