Twitter Goes Crazy After SRK’s Daughter Makes The Cover of Vogue
Suhana Khan, is the daughter of Bollywood King Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan. She is now all set to make her debut in Bollywood. The newcomer landed on the cover of Vogue magazine.
“I absolutely loved shooting this cover,” Suhana says in the interview. “Especially the dancing shots. I love dancing! It was so much fun. I was excited when my parents brought it up. I wanted to say yes straight away, but they wanted me to think about it as this a very public thing. They wanted me to gain confidence from the experience, not lose it.”
Good thoughts for Suhana, however, her decision has created quite the stir on the internet.
Why Suhana Khan is on the cover of Vogue India?
Give me 1 reason except she’s the daughter of.

Lordy, why is Suhana Khan in Vogue India magazine? What is she promoting? She gonna really have to put in the work cause her daddy is King Of Bollywood. Maybe I have to dig a bit deep but so far I don’t see it🤷🏽♀️

So disappointed with Suhana Khan on the cover of Vogue India. I think they need to work a little harder for cover stars rather than just doing it to make Bollywood happy

Ironically, the interview sees Suhana open up about the downside of being a star child. “I realized quite early on that it was different for us but I never really thought about my dad being famous. When I was about five, he would come and drop me to school and people would point and stare. He wasn’t being addressed as Suhana’s dad, which is what I wanted,” she says. “It confused me. He would want to hug me and I would push him back in the car. I hated the attention, it made me very self-conscious. I realized if I wanted to hug my dad, he’s my dad — I’m just going to hug him.”
“I don’t think there was any one moment when I decided. Since I was young, I’d do all these accents and impressions. But my parents only realized I was serious about acting when they saw a performance of mine for the first time,” she reminisces.
Of her Bollywood debut, King Khan’s only daughter commented, “There’s so much to learn and one way to do it is to start [working] early. But first, I want to go to university and finish my studies.”
Suhana, who is currently studying in England, believes moving away at 16 was the best decision of her life. “Living in a different environment and meeting so many new people helped me gain a lot of confidence,” she remarks. “It’s about being able to do the little things, like walk on the street or take the train — stuff that was so hard to do in Mumbai. But living away also made me appreciate home so much more.”
Thanks to her father’s exponential career, the budding starlet has a very clear idea of what awaits her the moment she steps into showbiz. “At home, things are normal and everything is cool but the challenges are outside. I still find it hard because people feel like they can judge you, especially on social media,” she goes on to say. “Pictures from my private Instagram account get leaked. There are so many people talking about you. They don’t know you and they don’t know what they’re talking about, but they’re just talking. And that can mess with your self-confidence.”
Fortunately, Suhana already knows how to handle the stress. “I keep telling myself haters are going to hate, but I can’t honestly say that I don’t get upset by it. It’s annoying, but I keep telling myself other people have bigger problems.”
That’s a star there!
