Meanwhile, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Ira talked about how she "never felt the inclination to act" except for an action film. Ira, who has always preferred working behind-the-camera, 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."
Ira was born to Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his first wife Reena Dutta. She has studied music, while her brother Junaid often assists his father in filmmaking.
