After Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter Alia Bhatt, Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan is all set to make her debut. But with a theatre play.
Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira is all set to make her directorial debut with a theatre play titled Medea, an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides. It is based on the myth of Jason and Medea.
It is scheduled to open in December and will be staged across the country.
In an interview with a leading daily, Aamir’s daughter Ira spoke about why she chose theatre to make her debut.
“There’s no particular reason why I decided to start with theatre. I love the art form. It’s magical and all-consuming in its classical form, and in the world of technology. I love the suspension of disbelief that the audience allows for, thus offering the makers to express so much more.”
Talking about acting and the kinds of genres she wants to direct Ira said:
“I have never considered acting. As far as directing more plays is concerned, I would have to find a story that I want to tell. I don’t have fondness for a specific genre. I’m not particularly into horror but other than that, I’m open to all sorts of stories.”
Well, knowing what a perfectionist Aamir is, we can expect the same from Ira. It will great to see her make her debut in Bollywood too.
On the work front, Aamir Khan was last seen in Thugs Of Hindostan. The movie did not do well at the box office. The actor will soon be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha which is the remake of the hit Hollywood movie, The Forest Grump. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen opposite Aamir in the movie. According to speculations Vijay Sethupathi will also be seen in the movie.
