The only question close to his heart in colourism. While writing down her thoughts on the matter, she once wrote a long post about it. She said: “There is a lot going on right now and this is one of the issues that we need to resolve !! it’s not just about me, it’s about every young girl / boy who has grown up feeling inferior for no reason. Here are some of the comments on my appearance. Adult men and women have told me that I am ugly because of my skin tone since I was 12. Aside from the fact that these are real adults, the sad thing is that we are all Indians, which automatically makes us brown – yes we come in different shades but it doesn’t matter how hard you try to get away from melanin, you just can’t. “
“Hating your own people just means you are painfully insecure. I’m sorry if social media, Indian matchmaking or even your own families have convinced you that if you are not 5-7 and fair you are not beautiful. Hope it helps to know that I am am 5 “3 and am brown and extremely happy about it and you should be too. #endcolourism. “
The post received a lot of support from Suhana from her many fans online and also industry friends of her family. Director Zoya Akhtar, wife of actor Sanjay Kapoor Maheep, eldest son of Saif Ali Khan, Ibrahim, and aunt of actor Ananya Panday, Deanne have spoken out in support.

Speaking to Indian Express, she said, “I think it’s time we stopped discriminating on the basis of our skin color, and I’m proud of her for standing up for herself.”
