Maybelline has officially announced Suhana Khan, daughter of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, as their newest brand ambassador. Along with Suhana Khan, singer and entrepreneur Ananya Birla, supermodel and cop Eksha Kerung, and last but not least badminton champion PV Sindhu has also been chosen as Maybelline brand ambassador.
During Suhana’s first media event, Suhana said, “Hi everyone. I am so excited to be here and see you guys again. We had such a good time filming. So I’m just really excited to be here and I can’t wait for you guys to see everything we have filmed. It’s an honor to be a brand ambassador for Maybelline after hoarding so many of their iconic products, especially their mascaras are amazing. But, yeah I am just super excited and happy to be a part of this brand and I can’t wait to make it shine with all of you.”
The selection of Suhana as Maybelline’s brand ambassador much before her debut left the internet disappointed. Many netizens came forward and criticized the brand for selecting star kid because of her privilege.

Several social media users reacted to the announcements on Reddit. One user commented, “Explain me again why is she face of maybelline?” Another user wrote, “It screams privilege tho being beside PV Sindhu. Ananya Birla lives with Auto tune.” Someone wrote, “Man the ultimate power of nepotism is this getting a global brand endorsement before the debut”
“Suhana’s inclusion is typical PR nepo baby move to ponder and become an icon for youngsters. I guess Alia also did maybeline initially,” added another.One more said, “I lost all my hope for her after watching this. Not that I had much but she isn’t giving me a single crumb of confidence.” Another user wrote, “Nepo garbage disgusting”
