A video of Shah Rukh Khan's 16 year old daughter Suhana recently went viral. In it, she stepps into the glass shoes of Cinderella during the recital of a play. However, the Cinderella act was not a theatrical narration of the classic but the retelling of a tale in a new light.
NDTV reports that Suhana's Cinderella is a rather unruly attention seeker who yearns for the limelight with the aid of self-victimisation. Thus, her character becomes more challenging as she does not have a reference point to adhere to. Here are clips from her play:

Shah Rukh has always maintained that his two elder children, the 19 year old Aryan and Suhana, have expressed their desires to follow in their father's footsteps and join the Hindi film industry as actors. But in a recent interview with Anupama Chopra for Film Companion, Shah Rukh pointed out that his children will have to complete their education first before they can turn to acting in films.
In the same interview, Shah Rukh shared how his children are well-versed with the lows of being a Hindi film celebrity as they have witnessed their father's frustrations and loneliness in close quarters. Thus, they are aware of the downside of being on such a high pedestal and that is exactly why they are willing to work even harder to achieve the same status themselves.
