SRK Posts A Heartfelt Note For Daughter Suhana Khan
Shahrukh Khan is over the moon about his daughter’s Bollywood debut and took to Instagram to share his words of wisdom for her as she steps into the world of acting. He writes,
“And remember @suhanakhan2 you are never going to be perfect….but being yourself is the closest to that. Be kind and giving as an actor….the brickbats and applause is not yours to keep….the part of you that gets left behind on screen will always belong to you….u have come a long way baby….but the road to peoples heart is unending…..stride forth and make as many smile as you can. Now let there be Light….Camera and Action! Signed Another Actor.”
Our hearts are so full!
Now, THIS is what you call a Bollywood debut. We are super hyped to see how this pans out, especially how these star kids perform.
