Ira Khan, Aamir Khan's daughter from his first marriage to Reena Dutta, was born on May 10, 1997. The 21-year old girl has an older brother Junaid, and has a huge presence on social media, in particular on Instagram. Ira frequently shares pictures of herself with her friends and family, and keeps her Insta followers updated about her life. (All pictures/Ira Khan's official Instagram account)
Like brother Junaid, Ira might also pursue a career in Bollywood, but at a later stage. Though Ira has not yet made her Bollywood debut, neither of her parents have revealed any details about her career plans in the world of showbiz. The star daughter was holidaying with pals in Europe when she took a fancy to the Netherlands and decided to pursue her academics there.

A while ago, a source told mid-day, "Ira is Aamir's only daughter and obviously, he was concerned when she told him about going to Europe with her friends. Initially hesitant, he eventually agreed because he knows that she is an adult now."
Another source revealed that while Aamir is extremely close to all his children, he has a special bond with Ira. Ira, herself, revealed in a Father's Day Instagram post that Aamir Khan is 'ridiculously protective' of her. She wrote, "From being ridiculously over-protective to telling me I should be more rebellious... you've been an amazing person to have in my life. You're always there when I need you. People always ask what it's like to be brought up by and around you, some think it would be really cool or exciting... but that would be an understatement..."

Ira continued, "Thanks for being such an educational, stimulating and inspirational figure in my life. I'm passive aggressive too so I may not tell you how cool I think you are but I definitely think it. And thanks for the great-skin-gene!"

Ira's brother Junaid is more interested in theatre, as per papa Aamir. He has worked as an assistant director on Rajkumar Hirani's PK, which featured Aamir Khan in the lead. "He should lead his own life and take his own decisions. He certainly has an inclination towards the creative world and towards filmmaking. He is following his path, he has studied theatre. He is actually more interested in theatre than films," said Aamir Khan in an interview.

Ira Khan likes to keep away from the media glare and unlike her brother Junaid Khan, she is rarely seen giving media appearances.
Aamir Khan's daughter Ira Khan is as creative as her father. Ira was inclined towards music since childhood and was planning to join musician Ram Sampath as an assistant.
Ira Khan has a friendly, warm, fun-loving personality. Her pictures speak oodles about her love for animals and her great equation with her friends.
The Khan daughter also likes travelling. Ira has a bunch of pictures with her friends at beaches, which makes us believe she is a water baby.
This gigantic teddy was gifted to her by her boyfriend, Mishaal Kirpalani. Ira had shared this picture on Instagram with the caption, "ALWAYS WANTED A TEDDY BIGGER THAN ME!!Thanks for the best Christmas/New Year gift ever (sic)" Mishaal had replied saying, "Love You"
Earlier, her relationship with Mishaal was just a rumour, but recently, she indulged in an #AskMe Anything session on Instagram. During this session, one of her followers asked Ira if she was single or dating somebody. To which, the star kid shared a picture of herself with Mishaal Kirpalani. In the picture, Ira is seen hugging Mishaal and had tagged him in it.
Mishaal Kirpalani, going by his Instagram bio, is an artist and music composer. He has been sharing a lot of videos of his compositions on his social media handle. And yes, his Instagram page, too, is filled with pictures of Ira.
Ira pictured here hanging out with a close friend. She captioned the photo simply as, "You are my red cup."
With such a fascinating and fun online presence, we're sure Ira Khan would make magic on the big screen as well, whenever she's ready for it.
