Actor Aamir Khan's daughter, Ira Khan took her Instagram account to speak about the causes behind her depression and that maybe it's all made up in her head.
Ira Khan unveiled last month that she was diagnosed with depression. But, soon after the revelation, the internet consumers subjected irrelevant questions about privileges instead of showing support to her.
Even when she uploaded dressed up pictures on Halloween, one of her followers commented, "Ira Ji I don't know why but you don't look like a depressed person. You are looking alright. Does your dad knows about your depression?" To which her cousin Zain Marie gave a strong comeback by saying, "Depressed people don't look like anything. They look like people."
So, Ira uploaded a ten-minute long video, where she spoke about her privileges and that even after having those prerogatives, she doesn't know the reason behind her sadness.
Ira wrote in her post, "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 even mentioned that her parents' divorce never was an issue to traumatise her because her parents were always good to her and her brother Junaid. "They are friends, and the whole family is still friends. We are not a broken family by any means," she said in the video.
She said that she used to sleep a lot and never realised that she is sleeping too much.
She would cry a lot and even cancelled plans to go out.
She even doubted herself and said that she is making all this in her head, that these are not real, that she should get up and try to fix things. But, again she said that if she cannot then shouldn't she ask for help?
