Actor Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan reveals she has been struggling with depression for more than four years.

On the occasion of world mental health day, Ira Khan opened up about how she has been “clinically depressed” for more than four years.

She uploaded her message video on Instagram and shared her thoughts about mental health issues. She wrote, “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.”

“I have decided to take you on a journey – my journey – and see what happens. Hopefully, we’ll get to know ourselves and understand mental illness slightly better. I’ve thought of so many things to say. What should I say? Why am I doing this?” she added.

In the end, she signed off the video, saying, “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, who made a directional debut last year, shared the video and wrote the caption, “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.”
