I Was Sexually Abused at 14 By Someone I Knew: Aamir Khan’s Daughter Revealed
“When I was 14, I was sexually abused. That was a slightly odd situation in the sense that I didn’t know whether the person knew what they were doing. I sort of knew them. It wasn’t happening every day.”
Moreover, the star kid added that communicating with her parents Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta, helped her get her out of the horrific situation that she was engulfed in.

HINDI VERSION – LINK IN BIO. I never spoke to anyone about anything because I assumed that my privilege meant I should handle my stuff on my own, or if there was something bigger, it would make people need a better answer than “I don’t know.” It made me feel like I needed a better answer and until I had that answer, my feelings weren’t something I should bother anyone else with. No problem was big enough to ponder too long about. What would anyone do? I had everything. What would anyone say? I had said it all. I still think there’s a small part of me that thinks I’m making all this up, that I have nothing to feel bad about, that I’m not trying hard enough, that maybe I’m over reacting. Old habits die hard. It takes me feeling my worst to make myself believe that it’s bad enough to take seriously. And no matter how many things I have, how nice to me people are because of my dad, how nice to me people are because they love and care about me… if I feel a certain way, a certain not nice way, then how much can rationally trying to explain these things to myself do? Shouldn’t I instead get up and try and fix things? And if I can’t do that for myself? Shouldn’t I ask for help? . . . #mentalhealth #privilege #depression #repression #divorce #sexualabuse #letstalk #betterlatethannever #letitout #depressionhelp #askforhelp
Finally, I’m Talking about that Horrible Experience
Ira added in the video, “It took me about a year to be sure that they knew what they were doing and that’s what they were doing. I immediately wrote to my parents an email and got myself out of that situation.”
In addition to this, she said that her past experiences were not something that ‘scared’ her.
“I wasn’t scared. And I felt like this wasn’t happening to me anymore and it is over. I moved on and let go. But it was again not something that has scarred me for life. And something that could be making me feel as bad as I was feeling when I was 18-20 years old,” she added.
Her parents’ divorce had no role to play in ‘traumatizing’ her. In fact, they are still friends and perfect parents to her and her brother Junaid, she added in the video.
“When I was small, my parents got divorced. But that didn’t seem like something that would traumatize me because my parents’ divorce was amicable. They are friends, the whole family is still friends. We are not a broken family by any means,” Ira admitted.
Parents Separation has Nothing to do with me Mental Illness
“When people would say ‘Oh I am so sorry to hear about your parents’ divorce, I would be like ‘What are you talking about? It is not a bad thing. Another privilege I didn’t realize. It could be something that could scar you. It didn’t scare me.”
According to Ira, she does not remember most of it. Moreover, she does not feel like her parents’ divorce is something that could bother her. “So that can’t be the reason why I am feeling so sad,” she said.
