MUMBAI: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan, who already makes waves on the internet, is reportedly all set to enter into the film industry and has signed her first project.
In a recent media interaction, Shah Rukh’s wife, Gauri Khan revealed that the 17-year-old will soon begin shooting for a magazine.
“Suhana is shooting for a magazine. I don’t want to reveal the name but that’s the most exciting thing I am looking forward to this year,” Gauri said while speaking to reports at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards held last weekend.
Earlier, Shah Rukh on his children working in the film industry had said that education was his first and foremost priority, after which his children have to freedom to pursue whatever they want.
“Suhana wants to be an actress. I see that zeal in her. She’s extremely good on stage, I’ve seen her performances. She’s admittedly a cinema fan and wants to be in the industry. But my point is simple, you need to complete your education before doing anything. That’s the only thing I have told my children,” he said.
Elaborating further on Suhana’s interest in the film industry, Shah Rukh had remarked, “Suhana is more theatre-oriented and has been doing plays. The best part is that she doesn’t want to learn (acting) from me. She wants to be an actor in her own right.”
However, he added that Suhana needs to be prepared for the gender discrimination which happens in the industry: “She can be an actor if she has the passion and guts to work five times harder than me and get paid 10 times less than I do; if times don’t change for women actors. I want her to experience what my female co-stars have gone through. My daughter will be an actor like them and I want to feel the pain.”
