Suhana Khan, the daughter of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, is all set to step into showbiz. She will be making her much-awaited debut with Zoya Akhtar's The Archies. Ahead of it, the young aspiring actress spoke at a book launch in Mumbai and opened up about being away from home for studies. Suhana said she left home at the age of 15 for boarding school and further studied in the UK and New York.
Suhana said, "I have studied in the UK and New York and I feel like it was the people and the friendships that I made that made it home rather than the place. I wouldn’t call myself an immigrant and all. I went there to study. I left home when I was 15 for boarding school, so I think that was scary because it was definitely a culture shock and I think it took me a while to feel at home and when I did it was because of the people there and how their friendship, their love made me feel seen when I felt invisible."
Suhana graduated from United Kingdom's Ardingly College in 2019. She then went to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts for further studies. While studying there, she often participated in dramas and actively did theatre. Much before announcing her official debut, Suhana starred in her friend's film The Grey Part of Blue, which is available on YouTube for viewing.
In April, Suhana bagged her first brand endorsement. She became the new face of Maybelline New York. Sharing her first ad film, Suhana wrote, "Thrilled to be the new face of Maybelline New York and to share the space with these amazing women! @ananyabirla @ekshakerungofficial & @pvsindhu1 @maybelline_ind (sic)."
