Who is Ira Khan?

Ira Khan is Aamir Khan’s daughter from his first wife Reena Dutta. She works as a theatre director. Previously, she wanted to pursue a career in music and had contemplated assisting composer Ram Sampath. Talking about her interest in direction, Khan had told Hindustan Times, “I’ve always felt more comfortable and enthusiastic about working off-stage or behind the camera rather than 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.”
