Talking exclusively to Deadline, Shah Rukh said, “She never called me. I didn’t sign any films and I thought, ‘Maybe she’ll call me, maybe she’ll call me.’ So, I called her one day and said, ‘Listen, may I start working now?’ and she said, ‘Why aren’t you working?’ And I said, ‘I thought you’d call me and feel lonely in New York.’ ”
Suhana had moved from the UK to the US to pursue a film studies course from New York University. She shot for The Archies this year and made several glamourous appearances at multiple Diwali parties and film screenings in Mumbai in recent months.
