Aamir Khan's daughter Ira was reportedly set to make her debut as a director in a theatre production, titled Euripides Medea but first, she'll direct a music video. Ira Khan shared a picture from the sets as she looked around and captioned the post, "I was sitting in the car with Danielle Pereira and she turned to me and said, 'Hey Iru, I just realised your career has begun.' And I realised it had." In the hashtags, Ira revealed that she's directing a music video but she did not share details about the project.
Here's Ira Khan's post from her work place:
Earlier this week, trade analyst Taran Adarsh reported that Ira Khan will direct Euripides Medea, which will premiere in December 19. The play will be performed in select cities while the rehearsals will begin soon. Speaking about her theatrical debut, Ira earlier told Hindustan Times that she's always been interested to work behind the cameras. "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," she said.
Here's Taran Adarsh's tweet:
