Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan has no interest in being launched in Bollywood, not for now at least. However, Ira is often spotted Instagramming glimpses of her personal life — be it working out at the gym, baking the occasional coffee cake or when she got her first tattoo. In another viral post, the 21-year-old recently flaunted another hidden talent. She walked into a tattoo studio to be trained in the art of tattooing and explore it as an “alternate career”. Sharing pictures from a tattoo studio on Instagram, Ira wrote: “What?” followed by a bunch of emojis. She also posted a picture of herself working in a tattoo studio, learning the art of tattoo-making.

Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh spotted it and asked her in shock, “What are you doing!!!!” In the comments, Gulshan Devaiah warned, “Careful with the axe.”


Unlike her father, Ira is pursuing film-making and aspires to be behind the camera. Explaining her new-found love in her next post, she wrote: “Bucket list item #5: Done. I JUST DID MY FIRST TATTOO! ME.” Sharing a video and image of a tattoo, Ira thanked celebrity fitness trainer Nupur Shikhare for trusting her and Iron Buzz Tattoos studio for making it possible. “Not bad, right? I think I have an alternate career,” Ira shared how she made her first tattoo.


Subsequently, Ira also teased her followers with a picture of herself making a tattoo on her coach Shikare’s arm on her Instagram story.

Last year, Ira had made headlines after she posted a few pictures in which she was seen taking some photography lessons. In another post, she had shared a picture of her first tattoo on Instagram and captioned it as, “If we won’t, who will? This is what the tattoo reads, as well. In the picture, Ira showed us her first tattoo on her left hand and we must say it is quite inspiring. Take a look:

Ira recently made her debut as a theatre director. Previously, she was thinking about pursuing a career in music and had contemplated assisting composer Ram Sampath. Talking about her interest in direction, Ira had told Hindustan Times, “I’ve always felt more comfortable and enthusiastic about working off-stage or behind the camera rather than [being] in front of it. I’ve never felt the inclination to act except if it were in an action film, so I get to learn all the cool stunts. Then again.. I can just learn how to do the stunts without a film to work on.”
