BOLLYWOOD: Unlike her acting career, Sara Ali Khan’s magazine cover debut has not been met with the best reactions. The budding starlet has graced the cover of Filmfare’s March issue, which was revealed on Tuesday. The pictures for the cover story were shot in Kenya with a few Masai tribesmen and women, reported Hindustan Times.
But like we said earlier, those pictures have not gone down well with fans. Several Twitter users have expressed disappointment at the “tone deaf” and “racist” photo-shoot for using a tribe as a prop for the pictures.
“She really got a whole human being behind her like a Jojos Bizarre Adventure stand,” wrote one Twitter user. “Shame. I actually liked Sara Ali Khan… I thought she was different from these Bollywood clowns,” wrote another.
Most people called out the magazine for digitally editing the pic and adding the man behind her. However, the Masai tribesmen are known for their ability to jump straight up. The man’s shadow is hid behind Khan and therefore, appears as if he has no shadow and has been photo-shopped into the picture.
