Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan's daughter Suhana Khan shot her first ever magazine cover for Vogue's August issue. It was unveiled yesterday by proud dad Shah Rukh at the Vogue Beauty Awards 2018. She also gave the first ever interview of her life to Vogue and revealed many interesting details about her life.

Suhana was quite excited for the shoot. Also, she was so confident that it didn't seem like her first shoot or interview on a public platform. She said, "I absolutely loved shooting this cover. 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—this is a very public thing. They wanted me to gain confidence from the experience, not lose it."

Suhana has come to Mumbai on a short break. In the coming week, she will go back to her other life as a student in London. Speaking about staying so far away from her parents and home, Suhana said, "Moving away at age 16 was the best decision of my life. Living in a different environment and meeting so many new people helped me gain a lot of confidence. 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."

Suhana's thoughts on her studies and career resonate with that of her father. Shah Rukh has always maintained that his children will have to complete their education first, before pursuing any career. She said, "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 studies."

Suhana has already decided that she will make her career in acting, and has never even thought about anything else. She said, "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 realised I was serious about acting when they saw a performance of mine for the first time. I was playing Miranda in a school performance of The Tempest.”

During the interview, Shah Rukh came in and sat beside his daughter massaging her aching feet like every other father (“I told you those shoes were nonsense…”). "Pretend I’m not here, I just want to hang out with my daughter," he said. 

Suhana revealed that it was tough growing up as the daughter of a superstar. She said, "I realised 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. 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.”

But over the time, she came to terms with the reality. I realised if I wanted to hug my dad, he’s my dad—I’m just going to hug him," she said. She added that Shah Rukh is her best friend and there is nothing that they don't talk about.

Along with the perks of being a star kid, there are some cons too. Suhana has been time and again trolled mercilessly by the netizens for some or the other reasons. Opening up about these trolls, Suhana said, "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. 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 is coping to Janhvi as she is daily writing an article but she has no good writing skill like janhvi

This is a beautiful shot!

Hateful, unwarranted comments here. She’s gorgeous and clearly has a sweet soul.

Daddy has also to be there to answer the questions during the interviews like he does with Mommy?

She seems smart! Looks like people can only hate her for her looks now. Which is stupid, since she's a beautiful girl.

Love her confidence and I am not even an srk fan

Then stop posting inappropriate pictures of yourself.

By the looks of it Aradhya will be on the Vogue cover soon.

She looks bad with all that makeup

beautiful charismatic as her father

so beautiful charismatic as her father

all interviews are scripted to these nepo kids. if they can buy magazine covers they can buy a interviews too.

God no grace, no looks still get a every chance. Heights of nepotism

Dear Suhana ,the problem here is if u become an actress everybody will have an opinion on ur looks ,acting ,clothes,behavior ,everything . Not all of this is going to be complimentary & there will definitely be resentment for the things you've been gifted on a platter while others are still struggling. You will be like Abhishek Bachchan & Jhanvi Kapoor forever compared to your supernova parent. If you get to enjoy the perks of nepotism - such as Vogue cover for no reason at all - you will have to deal with the drawbacks as well. Or choose to go out of the limelight !

perafrased interview posibly editied by her dad, acting by itself has no meaning, but scocial massages one brings to the world through movies, awkward and rediculus for 18 year old being surved who should surve herself as a bridge for a better future

I don't know how she deals with it....shes too young for this kind of criticism

Suhana seems intelligent girl.... She is way more confident in her interviews than Janhvi or Sara.. Janhvi was always under shadow of Sridevi...

Yeah janhvi was under sridevi’s shadow, but she already talked about all this and was praised for her honesty and didn’t make any wtf statements.

Nah! This girl just ain’t got it! Sorry but she’s only here coz of her dad.

Wow she is making jahnvi look deserving

atleast she recognises her privilege unlike other nepo kids (sonam)
