Ira mentioned that she retook the video at least 8 times because she doesn't know how to explain her mental illness. "I had been to one of my favouritest people's wedding, my sister Zayn and I'm very happy for her. I was very happy for the couple but still felt crappy about my life. I can be seen smiling in all the pictures. Actually, I'm not, I was talking throughout a lot of pictures. Before that I would work and work and work and come back home to cry and again rush to work," she explained.

While talking more about Ira Khan's cousin's wedding she added, "Then I decided to attend the wedding and had to work a lot. But I would just stay in my bed and cry and I wish I could get more involved in the wedding but I couldn't." She also mentioned that the two days have been a bit better after the wedding. However, she doesn't have the time and energy to translate the video in Hindi or even reply to every comment like before."
