In an interview with a leading publication, on being asked if Ira took any direction tips from her father Aamir, she said, "Both our parents have pretty much let us be and figure stuff on our own. They have always been there for us but essentially they’ve let us figure it out. So, it’s not like he has given me any specific tips. But he has told me general stuff about how to keep my priorities correct and also about people management and how to deal with them."

Ira Khan also revealed that she hasn't studied direction specifically but believes in telling stories. She says one can direct however they want as long as they know how to communicate. She concluded by saying that she doesn't want to stick to one thing in her life and direction is one of the many things she wants to do. Except being a doctor, she wishes to be in "every career and every profession ever."
