Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan has taken to social media to announce that Bollywood actress Hazel Keech had said yes to her. A jubilant Ira shared a photo of her going down on one knee to Hazel, who’s now the wife of former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh.
Ira wrote, “It’s amazing to get to work with you, as a friend but more importantly as an actor, @hazelkeechofficial. I can’t wait to see what we make.”
The proposal made by Ira was about the lead role in her debut directorial venture of a play, which is an adaptation of Euripides’ Greek tragedy Medea. Ira asked Hazel to play the lead role of Medea and, as expected, she could no say no to the offer.
An elated Hazel too shared the same photo on her Instagram account and explained why she could not say no to Ira’s offer. According to her, the first reason was the friendship she enjoyed with Ira. The proposal made by Ira, she added, also allowed her to return to theatre after a gap of 10 years.
Hazel, who shot to fame with Salman Khan-starrer Bodyguard, wrote, “After being away from theatre for almost a decade im back in the Greek Tragedy Medea…. playing Medea!!! This is doubley excited because A. Im back to theatre, my first love and B. My sweet little @khan.ira is directing it!!!! Im impressed more and more each passing day with her clarity and conviction of what she wants and is trying to achieve and by her confidence and self esteem she has at such a young age. Im so proud to be working with you on this Tich, love you.”
Scheduled to premiere in December this year, the play will travel across India. Ira is the daughter of Bollywood megastar Aamir Khan and his first wife Reena Dutta.
