While it may be a big day for Suhana Khan, not everyone is equally impressed by her debut on a magazine cover. Shah Rukh Khan’s 18-year-old daughter was revealed as the face of Vogue India’s August issue on Tuesday and the reaction from public has been mixed.

Suhana, who is still a student and hopes to join an acting course soon, makes her introduction on the cover of the magazine. In a long interview, she talks about her life as the daughter of a Bollywood superstar, her relationship with her father and aspirations for her future.

However, if we go by people’s reactions on Twitter, the decision to launch Suhana with a magazine cover has not been very well appreciated. The magazine is being called out for promoting nepotism in Bollywood by featuring a superstar’s child, undeservedly. “I have nothing against star kids and tbh it is not even about nepotism but to see Suhana Khan in the cover page of the August issue of @VOGUEIndia with NO reason as to why she should have been is ridiculous. Is she a model? No. A socialite? No. An actor? No. A change maker? No,” wrote a disappointed Twitter user. “Student, theatre lover, future star, daughter of a star who will probably finance all her movies till she actually becomes a ‘star’.... but yea hello Suhana Khan. NepotismRocks: Karan Johar,” wrote another.

More reactions on Twitter were in the same vein. A struggling actor also tweeted her own woes and how the children of stars have it easy. “The reason I am annoyed is because when Suhana Khan had to step into the Vogue India office, nobody told her “you don’t fit the requirement.” To wake up each mrng with the same amount of motivation for the same agenda each day, every day, try that! I promise it isn’t easy!” she wrote.

However, a few her fans also came to her rescue. They believe people are simply being salty and jealous in their criticism of Suhana.

In her interview to the magazine, Suhana talked about online criticism and how it affects her. “I still find it hard because people feel like they can judge you. Especially on social media. 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. I keep telling myself that 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,” she said.
