I was all ready to work on Sunday and then Roozbeh asked me to suggest a book for the @medeatheplay page. You can guess how the rest of the day progressed… With @photographybyroozbeh sneaking up on me with a camera in my face, trying to remind me to get back to work! It was a Sunday okay!! And Percy Jackson😍 (I have the hard covers!) It's where my love for Greek mythology began, much to the disappointed to my Classics professer. But the books turner out to be accurate! So its a win-win. P.S. Rick Riordan has written about Roman and Egyptian mythology too☺ . . . #percyjackson #medeatheplay #euripidesmedea #nautankisaproduction #bookrecommendations #bookoftheweek #childhood #nostalgia #happyplace #rickriordanbooks

She is very happy and at the same time nervous to start this new journey of a becoming a director.  She recently revealed about her debut on Instagram and her excitement is just beyond the boundaries. Maintaining the exhilaration, Ira shared a behind-the-scene picture of herself on Instagram wherein she is seen preparing for the play.

In the picture, Ira is seen sitting with a laptop, notebooks and is busy penning something.  One can easily guess that she is working hard to leave her mark in the direction with her play.  She captioned the image as, “With a team so big and with so many people to coordinate between, I sometimes forget that I need to find time to sit down and do my own homework. There’s no point meeting people unprepared. So now I make time every few days. It calms the chaos enough to make it all-enjoyable.”

According to the sources, Ira’s play will premiere in December this year.  When asked about her debut play, Ira Khan stated that she chose to debut with theatre as she finds it magical. “There’s no particular reason that I decided to start with theatre. I love theatre, it’s magical and all-consuming; in its classical form, in the world of technology, it’s very real and physical. I love the suspension of disbelief that the audience allows for because then there’s so much you can express.” 

Oftentimes she was asked about her acting debut, but she said that she is not into acting at all.  She also revealed that she loves direction and especially of theatrical plays. We hope Ira leaves her mark in direction just like her dad Aamir made his mark in acting.
