Sara Ali Khan has landed herself in a fix. Recently, she shot a magazine cover for Filmfare which happens to be her debut shoot and the results aren’t as expected. Shot in Kenya, the cover has not been well received among Twitterati who are calling it ‘racist’ and in bad taste.

Using a Masai tribesman as a prop is not only offensive but distasteful and uncalled for. The cover is being dissed for cultural appropriation.

Here’s what they have to say:

It is not the first time a magazine cover has received negative reviews. Kriti Sanon shot a controversial magazine cover which was shot under a giraffe that was disturbingly suspended in the air. The shoot was called out for using a stuffed giraffe and the uncomfortable visual.


What Sara Ali Khan has to say about her photoshoot remains to be seen.
