Suhana Khan's Vogue cover flares nepotism debate

Saturday 04th August 2018 06:27 EDT

Almost a year after Kangana Ranaut making noise on rampant nepotism in the film industry, the topic has yet again resurfaced after Vogue India launched its August issue. The eminent magazine this month features none other than Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan as the cover face, ticking off the general public in the doing. Featuring the star kid, who apparently has no credible achievements to her name except for being born to the right set of parents, has brought Vogue India a lot of backlash on the internet.

Relentless Twitteratti called it out for promoting nepotism and giving Suhana a chance to feature on its cover, without her having done anything substantial and earning a name for herself. The August issue was launched by SRK himself at the Vogue Beauty Awards 2018. Eyebrows were raised and reasons were sought from the magazine team's end for choosing the 118 year old. Several jokes were also cracked as many wondered what she had done to be on the cover of a renowned magazine.

However, there were also many who slammed the trolls and complimented her on a stunning cover. Honestly, nepotism aside, our girl sure knows how to work the camera.
