When Ira Khan revealed her parents, Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta's divorce became a trigger for her depression

Earlier in an interview with The Times Of India, Ira Khan shared how her parents, Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta's divorce became a trigger for her emotional turmoil and led her to depression. Talking on the same issue, Ira said that it was her therapist who made her realise that her parents' split was one of the trigger points of her depression. However, Ira revealed why she blames herself for her depression and said:

"My therapist said that one of the trigger points was my parents, who handled their divorce as well as they could at that point. It was amicable. I am not blaming them, but what they didn't realise is that because they made it seem like divorce was not a big deal, there was a perception my mind created of the situation. We create perceptions and we don't necessarily communicate to people about those. So, I blame myself for my depression. I spent 20 years thinking that you have to be sad for people to love you. But now how do I go back? I want to be happy! So now, I have to systematically undo everything that I have done."
