Bollywood News

Suhana Khan, daughter of superstar Shah Rukh Khan and entrepreneur Gauri Khan, has taken to Instagram to highlight an important message on the obsession with fair skin. She revealed that because of her skin colour, she was called ugly since the age of 12.

"I’m brown and extremely happy about it” – says Suhana Khan in a post revealing she was called ‘ugly’ since age 12

In her Instagram post, Suhana 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,” she further wrote.

She said, “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.”
