Ira Khan, daughter of superstar Aamir Khan, took to her Instagram to wish her elder brother Junaid on Bhai Dooj . In a long and heartwarming post, she said how grateful she is to have a brother like him.
“Oh, what to say... so much to say... how to say it right? Happy Bhaubeej, Junnu I don’t think I express or consider how grateful I am to have a brother like mine so that’s what I use this day for. Junaid is a kickass brother.
“Such large chunks of my personality and life are the way they are because of him - all good things! And then we spent a few years away from each other doing various things. When I came back, he said Faezeh was looking for people to help backstage. He was also a part of the play,” she wrote along with a behind-the-scenes video from a play they did together.
In the video, one could see Junaid working with the crew while Ira is helping out other actors with their costumes.
“Watching Junaid in a professional space is awe-striking. And it reminded me and emphasized to me how much he is outside of just being my brother. Watching him (and discussing him with the rest of the crew behind his back), I was bloated with pride. Of course, I’d never tell him that. But that’s the perks of him not being on social media,” she said. Ira also asked her followers to be grateful for the good people in our lives. “Take a moment to appreciate the people in your life. And use any excuse to do it. They deserve it and so do you,” she wrote.
Ira and Junaid are Aamir’s children from his first marriage to Reena Dutta. The actor is now married to filmmaker Kiran Rao and they together have five-year-old son, Azad.
