Been Told I’m Ugly Because Of My Skin Tone Since I Was 12: Suhana Khan


Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan took to social media to discuss colourism. Stating that she has been facing derogatory and hurtful remarks about her skin tone from an early age, Suhana requested fans to ‘end colourism.’

“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 Indians, 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,” Suhana stated in a note on Instagram.

Suhana Khan wrote that only people insecure about how they look can resort to such mean methods to put others down. “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,” Suhana added as she concluded her statement.

Along with the note, the star kid also attached multiple screenshots of the comments she still receives about the way she looks.
