Suhana's first steps in the showbiz, dad SRK is overwhelmed
At 18, King Khan's daughter Suhana is the cover star of the August issue of Vogue. Unsurprisingly, the cover was launched by SRK himself. Styled by the editor of Vogue, Anaita Shroff Adajania, the star-kid looked glamorous in an Emilio Pucci multi-colored outfit. Proud parents, SRK and Gauri, expressed gratitude to Vogue for giving her the opportunity. Opportunity or nepotism, you decide?
Star kid is no stranger to the spotlight
Suhana might not have done a movie yet (Is uncle KJo listening?), but she's already a star of sorts. With right grooming, her comfort in front of the camera, and an enviable social circle, she is a teen influencer in the industry. Add her dad's contacts to the list, and perhaps a star is born!
Obviously, the nepotism debate started on the social media
Suhana's magazine cover appearance might have made her parents happy, but the social media circles have already started spewing hate. Believe it or not, Vogue India had to reportedly block comments on the post because nasty comments started pouring in, real soon. While the validity of the charges is debatable, the hurtful hate-mongering is perhaps unwarranted against the 18-year-old.
But isn't it getting repetitive now?
Everytime a star kid is launched, the debate around nepotism starts, and rightly so. Many people have made the same point here about Suhana having done nothing to be featured on the cover. And, we agree. That her next pit stop will most certainly be a Bollywood high-budget film or two is also a no-brainer. But, beyond that she will have to prove her mettle. No one knows it better than her own father.
In any case, his message will melt your heart
Holding her in my arms again thanks to Vogue. ‘What imperfect carriers of love we are...” except when it comes to our children. So sending u all my love a big hug. Hello Suhana Khan! pic.twitter.com/RrkhJ8kfz5— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) July 31, 2018
