Ira, who has always preferred working behind-the-camera, told a source “I’ve always felt more comfortable and enthusiastic about working off-stage or behind the camera rather than being in front of it. I’ve never felt the inclination to act except if it were in an action film, so I get to learn all the cool stunts. Then again, I can just learn how to do the stunts without a film to work on.”

Aamir is always open to letting his children do what they want to do”
