Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan is quite active on social media. Her posts are interesting and recently, she posted about colour discrimination.



Suhana shared a beautiful picture of herself and wrote, “There’s a lot going on right now and this is one of the issues we need to fix!! this isn’t just about me, it’s about every young girl/boy who has grown up feeling inferior for absolutely no reason. Here are just a few of the comments made about my appearance. I’ve been told I’m ugly because of my skin tone, by full grown men and women, since I was 12 years old. Other than the fact that these are actual adults, what’s sad is that we are all indian, which automatically makes us brown – yes we come in different shades but no matter how much you try to distance yourself from the melanin, you just can’t. Hating on your own people just means that you are painfully insecure. I’m sorry if social media, Indian matchmaking or even your own families have convinced you, that if you’re not 5″7 and fair you’re not beautiful. I hope it helps to know that I’m 5″3 and brown and I am extremely happy about it and you should be too. #endcolourism.”

In her post, Suhana has also shared a few comments and DMs that she has received in which people are making fun of her skin tone. Her post is quite impressive and we have to say that colour discrimination is a topic that surely needs to be discussed.

Well, Suhana is currently studying and there have been reports of her making her Bollywood debut soon. However, there’s no official announcement about it.
