Twitter wonders why Suhana Khan is on a magazine cover without having done anything
Twitter does not seem pleased about Suhana Khan getting her own magazine cover while still being a student.Updated: Aug 01, 2018 18:34 IST
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.
Really don't believe in celebrity bashing, but why is Suhana Khan is on the cover of Vogue?— Srishti (@Srishtea_) July 31, 2018
Technically this isn't even celebrity bashing, because she's not one, her father is.
My dad is an accountant, will ICAI put me on their monthly magazine cover?
can u imagine suhana saying ‘i want to be on vogue!!!’ and srk doing that *deep dad breath* thing and making a few calls lollll— harnidh kaur (@PedestrianPoet) August 1, 2018
SRK's daughter has gone through some struggle. It is also known as Suhana Suffer.— Numbyaar (@NumbYaar) August 1, 2018
I am a struggling TV actor and I'll tell you why people and other fellow struggling actors including me are annoyed because Suhana Khan is on the Vogue India cover. But before that, let me tell you my credibility. I have worked in a few episodics, 3 digital ads and a DD1 show.— iBAC (@IamBhumikaC) August 1, 2018
Suhana Khan on the cover of Vogue almost feels like she saw Jahnvi Kapoor and went "Papa, mereko bhi chahiye"!— Bellyrina (@BombayBellyrina) August 1, 2018
Suhana khan gets to be the face of a leading magazine just for being SRK's child where there are girls busting their asses in various fields to get half of that recognition is where it's at.— Juuu✨ (@PrisonerByBirth) July 31, 2018

#SuhanaKhan was this adorable kid who was doing theaters and showed talent. but now she is another wannabe using her daddy's position to get covers , sorry but I hate her as much as I hate Alia Bhatt or Janhvi Kapoor. Suhana is not pretty or cute, but SRK will force her on us.— Drama@ueen (@Bolly_drama) August 1, 2018
Struggles of being Suhana Khan:— Appurv Gupta-GuptaJi (@appurv_gupta) August 1, 2018
1. Having a sea facing Bungalow, so beach vacations aren't exciting
2. Being so rich that you cannot decide which Rolex to wear
3. Not getting launched by Karan Johar even though you are 18 pic.twitter.com/e6L4rXZzKz
Suhana Khan is on the cover of Vogue because.....?— Protima Tiwary (@DumbbellsnDrama) July 31, 2018
Reporter : Suhana safar aur ye mausum haseen— CrAy (@laughsfliesaway) August 1, 2018
Suhana Khan : bc my safar was not awesome, I struggled okay!!! 😏😒
Frankly SRK and Gauri MUST NOT let Karan manage Suhana's career path! I am positive he is the one who pimped the Vogue cover idea...The girl is getting unnecessary hatred and being dragged.... 'Tis too early 😑— Shilps (@noneofurbijness) July 31, 2018
Y'all come here with your emo tweets, break up stories, everyday struggles like insomnia, waking up early in the morning to go to work, getting stuck in traffic.— 🌻 (@Paprikaashh) August 1, 2018
But do Y'all ever think of our future star Suhana, the struggles she has to go thru? No, you think about yourself.
However, a few her fans also came to her rescue. They believe people are simply being salty and jealous in their criticism of Suhana.
Wth is wrong with ppl hating on Suhana! She’s the blood of Shah Rukh Khan; The King.. @iamsrk . She turned 18 & obviously she will be the face of various magazines even before she even act. Actually I thought she will be on an international cover. This’s nothing.— Hanna 💆🏻 (@HannanMust) July 31, 2018
I don't understand this outrage seeing Suhana in Vogue India Cover. SRK has earned everything what he is having today. What do you want that he should tell his daughter to go to every office early in the morning, be in the queue etc? Why the fcuk he has earned then?— شمشیر (@shamshir_gaya) August 1, 2018
Suhana Khan looks stunning in her vogue photoshoot. Why everyone has to shit over everything. Yes she’s privileged but that does not mean she didn’t deserve to be on that cover.— Neha Khan ✨ (@LazyBee_) August 1, 2018
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.
