Popular actress faces backlash for an insensitive magazine shoot

Popular actress Kriti Sanon, who is on a roll in Hindi cinema these days, has been slammed by hundreds of people on social media for a cover shoot that she had recently posed for. The shoot, which made it to the cover page of Cosmopolitan magazine, was organised at a private home near London, which had props of scores of animals.

The problem with the shoot, which many people highlighted, was the presence of a giraffe’s prop in the image. One fan even went on to say that while Kriti speaks about her disgust when she sees or hears about atrocities against women, it is quite ironical that she is okay with cruelty towards animals.

For now, neither the magazine nor Kriti have offered an explanation about the shoot or addressed the concerns of the readers.

“I’m not someone who gets angry easily, but when I read about atrocities against women, it really upsets me.” Meet our cover girl @kritisanon being her candid self in our August issue.✨ Photograph: @andrewwoffinden; styling: @zunailimalik; hair: @aasifahmedofficial; makeup: @adrianjacobsofficial using @facescanada; location courtesy: @aynhoepark; production: @viennafilms Kriti is wearing – high neck top, @hm; pants, @431_88; stilettos, Red Label Collection, @bata.india; necklace: @swarovski #KritiSanon #OnlyInCosmo #CosmoIndia
