Ira and Junaid are Aamir Khan's children with his first wife Reena Dutta. Speaking about his son Junaid's career in films, Aamir Khan told PTI in March that he has left the decision to him. Aamir Khan had said that Junaid has an inclination towards filmmaking and that he enjoys theatre more than films. "He is following his path, he has studied theatre. He is actually more interested in theatre than films. I am allowing him to go and find his own path. That's how it should be. He is very bright," Aamir had said.
Back to Medea - So far, we only know that Hazel Keech will play the titular role as Ira shared the update about her heroine in a quirky Instagram post, which read, "She said yes! It's amazing to get to work with you, as a friend but more importantly as an actor, Hazel Keech. I can't wait to see what we make." Hazel reposted Ira and added that she was doubly excited about playing Medea because, "A. I'm back to theatre, my first love and B. My sweet little Ira Khan is directing it."
Of Ira Khan shaping up as a director, Hazel said, "I'm impressed more and more each passing day with her clarity and conviction of what she wants and is trying to achieve and by her confidence and self-esteem she has at such a young age."
