Ira Khan, the daughter of actor Aamir Khan, cannot handle people mispronouncing her name anymore and decided to teach everyone how to rightly pronounce it in a video. She decided to educate her followers after many people wrongly pronounced it during an Instagram live session.

On Sunday, Ira shared a video and revealed that her friends are teasing her about the mispronunciation. She explained how her name should be pronounced. She added that anyone who mispronounces would have to put 5000 in a swear jar which she would donate at the end of every month or year. She shared the video with the caption, "Ira. Eye-ra. Nothing else," and used the hashtags, 'enough is enough' and 'swear jar.'

Ira recently opened up about her battle with depression. Sharing a video on Instagram, Ira said, "I do not do drugs, I do not harm myself, I do not drink too much, I do not have too much coffee, my depression does not work like that. I do not have immediate life threats. That is not how my depression manifests," she said. Ira explained she "piles up stuff", and finally, "it gets too much and I crash." She added that there is a sense of relief when she crashes.

Unlike Aamir, Ira doesn't see herself facing the camera as an actor. Directing seems to be her calling, with Ira already making her directorial debut with the play, Euripedes’ Medea, in 2019. The play starred Hazel Keech in the lead role and also featured her brother, Junaid Khan.
