Sara Ali Khan becomes the latest target of trolling as a magazine shared her debut magazine cover photo shoot. Her photo shoot for the magazine came under fire as for many people it fell for being ‘racist’ and ‘highly offensive’ and ‘cultural appropriation’
As being reported She shot for her first-ever magazine cover in Kenya, along with Maasai warrior. As the video shared by the magazine shows a Maasai warrior doing the traditional warrior dance. He can be seen jumping up and down right next to Sara Ali Khan.
Cultural appropriation is the act of inappropriately adopting ideas from a culture that’s not one’s own, especially of minorities, in an ignorant and unacknowledged manner by a relatively dominant community.

People came in bashing over the shared post, as for many of them a culture should not be used as a prop for the fashion shoots.
What is the concept of this shoot? People of other cultures and ethnicities are not props

Did someone actually approve this for publishing? In 2019? Shouldn’t you know better? People & cultures are not props for you to appropriate. Disgusted.

Many also accused the magazine of the bad Photoshop images.
Why is the person behind Sara photoshopped and levitating? https://t.co/6SgZwjdchI

It was earlier in January, when another Bollywood star Shraddha Kapoor was accused of ‘cultural appropriation’ for wearing Native American war bonnet, as she featured wearing a Native American headgear for her Dabboo Ratnani Calendar 2019 photoshoot.
