Suhana Khan’s first short film The Grey Part of Blue has been released on YouTube. Directed by fellow student Theodore Gimeno, the film is about a couple who must address the growing, unspoken tensions in their relationship during a road trip. Suhana plays Sandy, a girl who is eager to bring her partner home to her parents but realises that perhaps her boyfriend isn’t as invested in their relationship anymore.

In his note, Gimeno says he worked on the film for a year. He wrote, “Really excited to finally bring to you this project I’ve been working on for the past year! I’ve been immensely lucky to work with such an amazing group of people: cast, crew and friends that helped me turn this idea into something real! So that’s really awesome. And hopefully you will have enjoyed it too! Thank you!”
He had earlier shared a teaser, some behind-the-scenes photos and a couple of posters with the two lead characters.
Suhana is currently studying acting in New York. Last December, she featured in a play Juliet, which was staged in London. Speaking to Vogue, Suhana said that she decided to give acting a shot after participating in a school production of The Tempest. “I don’t think there was any one moment when I decided. Since I was young, I’d do all these accents and impressions. But my parents only realised I was serious about acting when they saw a performance of mine for the first time. I was playing Miranda in a school performance of The Tempest,” she said. In the same interview, Shah Rukh Khan insisted that he wasn’t going to launch his daughter’s Bollywood career just for the sake of it. “Suhana’s not working towards a promise of being cast, she’s working towards being an actor, and she knows that. I keep insisting that I don’t want them designed as stars, I want them to be launched when they are good-enough actors,” he said.
