Why is there a jumping masai warrior behind Sara Ali Khan?? Africans are not props for your photoshoots. — Chirag Wakaskar (@chiragwakaskar) February 26, 2019
Sara Ali Khan went to Columbia, and even she could not tell filmfare that maybe her “stunner” picture is racist and appropriative? Come on, Sara, you are one of the good ones!! https://t.co/lNlaaEcnFR
