Suhana Khan, daughter of Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, has written a strongly worded post calling out to end colourism. She revealed how she has been called ugly since she was 12 and shared distasteful comments where she was trolled with various names from ‘kaali chudail’ to kaali billi’

Suhana who has always been subjected to brutal trolling due to her looks and skin colour gave a befitting reply to the trolls this time around.

'Hating on your own people just means that you are painfully insecure’ Suhana mentioned adding that it was a sad spectacle for her to face criticism for her skin tone, as Indians were brown by default.

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. 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

Sharing screenshots of users who trolled her on her pictures she called upon the need to end colour discrimination and held that she was extremely happy with her complexion and height.

“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 also took to Instagram stories to thank everyone for supporting her and said that she would never get her skin lightened. “Thank you for the nicest comments/messages. And umm no... I didn’t get my skin lightened loll I would never,” she wrote.

While the post has been applauded by many, there is a section of netizens who are slamming the appeal to end colourism when SRK himself endorses a fairness cream for men.
