Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira opens up about getting anxiety attacks.

Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira Khan, is an avid social media user. More often than not, the star kid interacts with her social media followers. Being at her candid best, Ira shares details about her personal life on Instagram. Today, May 1, Ira informed her IG followers that she has started getting anxiety attacks. She even revealed that she has crying fits. In her long note, Ira mentioned that anxiety attacks have physiological symptoms as well.


Ira Khan shared her picture on Instagram and penned a long note. A part of it read, “I’ve started getting anxiety attacks. I’ve had anxiety. And I used to get overwhelmed. And have crying fits. But I’ve never had anxiety attacks before. It’s the difference between panic and panic attacks. Anxiety versus anxiety attacks. As far as I understand it (anxiety attacks), they have physiological symptoms. Palpitations, breathlessness. Plus crying. And it builds. Slowly. Feels like impending doom. This is what mine feels like. I do not know what a panic attack is like. It’s a really crappy feeling. My therapist said if it’s become regular (context, I had 1 or 2 over 2 months versus almost every day now), I needed to tell my doctor/psychiatrist.”

In the second half of her note, Ira Khan added, “In case anyone needed words to describe how they’re feeling and this can be of any help. It feels pretty helpless. Because I really want to go to sleep (it usually happens at night for me) but I can’t because it won’t stop. I try to identify my fears, talk myself down. But once it’s hit you, I haven’t found a way to stop it. You kind of need to ride it out. So far. That’s what I’ve figured. But while it’s building, talking to Popeye and breathing has helped make it not come to an attack. At least for a few hours. It also depends on if I get re-stressed by another stimulus later. Life’s full of variables. If you’re trying to be mindful, remember to take them all into account. Hang in there. P.s. This is me after a long shower after an attack. Showers are a beautiful thing. More on that later.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Aamir Khan will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, which is scheduled for release on August 11, 2022.
