Suhana Khan is a teenager who hasn’t yet stepped into Bollywood but has still managed to make humungous waves in the media circuit. The most recent debacle concerning Suhana was, her featuring on the Vogue India cover. As reported earlier, she is the August cover girl for Vogue India, and this did not go down well with Indian masses. We have to agree that people were justified in questioning why she landed the feature. After all, she hasn’t done a single acting project yet. She is yet to prove her mettle both as an actress and also as a socially responsible Indian.
But it seems like one of these things is about to change. Yes, the discussion of Suhana featuring in a Bollywood project has begun. As per reports, the news of Suhana Khan making her Bollywood debut will soon be broken to the media.
But currently, the discussion is centered on narrowing down, who will actually launch her. Most of you must have thought that it will be none other than Karan Johar who launches darling Suhana. That, however, could not be farther from the truth.
A source close to Shah Rukh Khan was reported saying this about Suhana Khan’s impending launch:
“His son Aryan is not yet inclined towards acting. But, daughter Suhana is definitely interested in an acting career. But, Shah Rukh wanted her to go through the grind. She has been doing theatre regularly. Now, both Shah Rukh and his wife Gauri feel Suhana is ready for a film career.”
The source further added about who is going to launch the debutante:
“Karan Johar is too obvious a name to do the needful. I think Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri are looking at some other names. As far as I know, almost every major filmmaker in Mumbai from Sanjay Leela Bhansali to Sujoy Ghosh has shown an interest in launching Suhana. She is a natural-born actress. Shabana Azmi saw her in a play and immediately recognized an accomplished actress in the debutante.”
We wonder amidst all the discussions, what does Karan Johar have to say?
