The Magazine cover reads: Hello Suhana  Khan a “student, theatre lover, future star.”

While giving interview to magazine, she said “I absolutely loved shooting this cover,” Suhana says in the interview. “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 as this a very public thing. They wanted me to gain confidence from the experience, not lose it

 

 

On the other side, Gauri Khan and Shahrukh Khan couldn’t contain their parent-ly pride and took to twitter to tell the world about how proud they’re of their daughter.

But things did not go down well with audience, Suhana’s magazine debut has stirred a whole new debate over social media on extreme “Nepotism” and has landed Vogue India into hot water.

 

 

A struggling TV actor also joined the bandwagon and unleashed the bitter reality of Bollywood about how it is a piece of cake for the heirs of Bollywood stars to make it to Vogue and movie industry, whereas people with no superstar backing have to face faliures and criticisms.


Last month, Jhanvi Kapoor, daughter of late Sri Devi, was the face of Vogue’s India June issue and she also faced flak for getting featured on cover photo with no personal achievements in her basket, called it an act of “Nepotism”


After enduring much opprobrium from every corner of country, Magazine disabled comments on all of the debutant’s videos and photos on Instagram eventually, but people didn’t spare them even after that.
