Aamir Khan and his daughter Ira Khan seem to be on different pages as she will be seen taking a different route to enter the world of cinema. Ira in her recent interview revealed that acting has never been her calling and her interest lies in filmmaking. She revealed that she loves the space behind the camera.

And though she's given a big NO for acting, her passion for filmmaking she has surely inherited from her father, who is famous for his directorial hits. Ira will be seen donning the director's hat or a play, named Euripides' Medea, a Greek tragedy. She has also already begun her work on her directorial debut which will take place in December, this year and will also be showcased across multiple locations in India.

Talking about her career choice as a director, Ira in a recent interview revealed, "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 also spoke about her love for theatre and admitted that she didn't make a conscious decision to start her career with theatre, further stating that it sort of happened. She also expressed her love for theatre and reading plays in literature class, working on school performances and then actually studying theatre in college.

She also revealed that she never considered acting as a career option and a source close to Aamir Khan also revealed that Aamir has always been supportive of Ira's choices from day one. The source said, "When Ira discussed the shortlisted plays which she wanted to direct, Aamir listened to her carefully and he liked it. Aamir is always open to letting his children do what they want to do."
