Yesterday was one eventful day for Indian internet browsers and Bollywood lovers. Shah Rukh Khan‘s daughter Suhana Khan made her debut by posing as the cover girl for one of the biggest fashion magazines in the country, Vogue. The internet lost its calm in many different ways and how! Most users immediately jumped to the nepotism discussion calling out how unfair it was and of course, there were quite a few times when Karan Johar‘s name came up in the mix. Considering his name is on top of the list as the flag-bearer of nepotism in Bollywood, there was no surprise there. But, he, in his usual KJo style tuned out all the hate and tweeted out Suhana’s Vogue cover like a proud father would and of course he had the best things to say about her and even gave us scoop on how Suhana doesn’t call him uncle! What does she call him? I’d want to know!
Have seen her on stage and had my heart bursting with pride!! She is stunning, soulful and a bonafide talent! Welcome to the spotlight my darling! Even in its harshest moments it will envelop you with immense love….and thank you for never calling me UNCLE! Love you ❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/wGIfET0nrD

Looking at the tweet, it seems like KJo almost predicted the backlash that Suhana would receive for the cover.
SRK in the interview with Vogue had mentioned that KJo was eager to get Suhana to the spotlight and launch her but he (SRK) had asked him to hold off until she’s a good enough actor. While Suhana has not made her debut in Bollywood yet, we can imagine her being launched under the Dharma Productions, can’t you?
What your thoughts on Suhana’s cover?
