The Pataudi girl, Sara Ali Khan, made her Bollywood debut with a bang. She started her journey with Abhishek Kapoor’s critically acclaimed Kedarnath, followed by a massy Rohit Shetty blockbuster like Simmba. As if that wasn’t enough, Sara has now made her grand magazine cover debut. Super-confident, fierce, bold and beautiful; needless to say, Sara looked absolutely stunning. However, the Khan girl is trending for all the wrong reasons.
Sara Ali Khan made it to the March 2019 issue of Filmfare, which was shot in Kenya, Africa, the pictures also featured a few Masai tribesmen and women. It had an African man in his traditional wear, standing in the background, while Sara stood ahead posing in a quirky embroidered dress. However, this particular experiment hasn’t really gone well with the internet. The netizens have expressed their displeasure as they accused Sara of using ‘Africans as props’ and ‘Cultural appropriation’ and termed her 'racist'. A lot of people even expressed their disappointment saying that this is not what they expected from Sara.
Earlier, the magazine was also trolled for photo-shopping the African man and placing him behind Sara. However, in a video posted by their team, it showed that the Masai tribesman was actually jumping and that’s when the shot was taken. Well, the video invited even more hate.
In the past, Bollywood actor, Shraddha Kapoor, too, was called out for using an American native bonnet as a prop in her photoshoot for Daboo Ratanani's calendar 2019. The ABCD 2 actor wore it as headgear and was bashed for 'cultural appropriation' by the netizens.
Uff! Poor girls!
