“We are not a broken family by any means” – says Ira Khan on her parents Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta’s divorce

In her latest video, Ira Khan talked about the privilege of being Aamir Khan’s and still being diagnosed with clinical depression. In a long post, she wrote, “I never spoke to anyone about anything because I assumed that my privilege meant I should handle my stuff on my own, or if there was something bigger, it would make people need a better answer than “I don’t know.” It made me feel like I needed a better answer and until I had that answer, my feelings weren’t something I should bother anyone else with. No problem was big enough to ponder too long about. What would anyone do? I had everything. What would anyone say? I had said it all.”

She also spoke about various things she observed like sleeping a lot, cancelling plans with friends, crying a lot amongst others. The young filmmaker also spoke about her parents’ Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta’s divorce and how it not traumatize her while growing up. “When I was small, my parents got divorced. But that didn’t seem like something that would traumatize me because my parents’ divorce was amicable. They are friends, the whole family is still friends. We are not a broken family by any means,” Ira said.

“I still think there’s a small part of me that thinks I’m making all this up, that I have nothing to feel bad about, that I’m not trying hard enough, that maybe I’m overreacting. Old habits die hard. It takes me feeling my worst to make myself believe that it’s bad enough to take seriously. And no matter how many things I have, how nice to me people are because of my dad, how nice to me people are because they love and care about me... if I feel a certain way, a certain not nice way, then how much can rationally trying to explain these things to myself do? Shouldn’t I instead get up and try and fix things? And if I can’t do that for myself? Shouldn’t I ask for help?” she captioned the video.
