Aamir Khan's daughter Ira to make directorial debut

Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan is all set to make her directorial debut with a theatre play Medea, an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides, based upon 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, 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," she said.

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."
