Ira Khan disclosed that she has been battling with clinical depression for four years in a video posted on her Instagram account. She captioned it:
“A lot has been going on, a lot of people have a lot to say. Things are really confusing and stressful and simple and okay but not okay and … life all together.
“There’s no way to say it all in one go. But I’d like to think I’ve figured some stuff out, or at least figured out how to make it slightly more understandable.
“About mental health and mental ill-health. So come with me on this journey … in my awkward, quirky, sometimes-baby-voice-y, as-honest-as-I-can-be… way.
“Let’s start a conversation. Happy World Mental Health Day.”
In the video, Ira Khan explained why she decided to share her mental health worries. She said:
“Hi, I am depressed I have been for more than four years now. I’ve been to a doctor and I’m clinically depressed.”
“I’m doing much better now. For over a year now, I wanted to do something for mental health but I wasn’t sure what to do.
“So, I have decided to take you on a journey, my journey and see what happens.
“Hopefully, we will get to know ourselves slightly better, understand mental illness better.”
Ira Khan added:
“Let’s start from where I started. What do I have to be depressed about? Who am I to be depressed? I have everything, right?”
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut recently mocked the Maharashtra government for an unexpected power cut which occurred in parts of Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote:
