Dad would want to hug me, I would push him back: Suhana Khan


Shahrukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan has given her first step towards showbiz. She adored the fashion magazine Vogue and gets candid about being a star daughter, about being trolled, her Bollywood plans and much more.

While interacting with Vogue, Suhana was asked how it felt being King Khan’s daughter. The diva replied, “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.”

Further, when the star kid was asked how she deals with trolls, she 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.”

Apart from Suhana, King Khan spilled the beans over her Bollywood plans. He said, “Suhana’s not working towards a promise of being cast, she’s working towards being an actor, and she knows that,” he adds. “We have friends who are very well-meaning and think of my kids as their own, and they’re all happy and keen to launch her. Like Karan (Johar). But I keep insisting that I don’t want them designed as stars, I want them to be launched when they are good-enough actor".
