Ira Khan, the daughter of famous Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his first wife Reena Dutta, has chosen not to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue acting.Instead, she has become a prominent figure on social media, particularly on Instagram, where she regularly shares photos and videos of her life.
Despite not being an actress, Ira continues to attract attention due to her personal life.Recently, she made headlines when she was spotted traveling in an auto-rickshaw in Mumbai, opting for a humble mode of transportation instead of a luxurious car.Accompanied by a friend, she appeared cheerful as she waved and thanked a paparazzo who recorded the encounter and shared it on Instagram.
Ira’s casual attire during the outing, consisting of a white and pink striped shirt layered over a gray top and paired with olive shorts, caught the attention of netizens.The reactions to her auto ride were mixed.Many of her fans praised her down-to-earth attitude, commending her for being a “simple star kid” and describing her as a “sweet and simple person.”
However, not everyone viewed her actions positively, as some criticized her for what they perceived as a publicity stunt.They claimed that attention-seeking tactics were employed when celebrities felt ignored or when their careers were on the decline.These comments reflected the larger sentiment of discontent towards talentless star kids and the supposed decline of Bollywood.
It’s worth noting that Ira is not the only celebrity who has chosen to travel in an auto-rickshaw recently.Sara Ali Khan, another popular Bollywood actress, was also spotted using this mode of transportation on two occasions.The first instance was during a promotional event for the trailer launch of her movie “Zara Hatke Zara Bachke,” where she was accompanied by her co-star Vicky Kaushal.
The second time, she opted for an auto-rickshaw to avoid Mumbai’s notorious traffic.
Aside from her auto-rickshaw adventure, Ira recently celebrated her 25th birthday with a themed party at home.The event had a “Ted Lasso” theme and was attended by her father Aamir Khan’s ex-wife Kiran Rao, her brother Azad, and her fiancé Nupur Shikhare.Notable personalities like Aamir’s cousin Imran Khan and actress Mithila Palkar were also present.
Ira got engaged to Nupur Shikhare, a professional gym trainer, last year.
