It seems like Kriti Sanon has landed herself in the middle of a huge controversy. The actress has been on the receiving end after a photoshoot for the magazine Cosmopolitan India featured her posing alongside a suspended giraffe. Though the said animal had perished due to natural causes and was later taxidermied, the image has rubbed quite a few netizens the wrong way. In fact, Indian stage & film actor Priyanka Bose took to the image hosting site berating both Kriti and the magazine for the insensitive shoot. If that wasn’t all, joining her were a host of others as well as known names like Dia Mirza and Freida Pinto who dissed the shoot.
Sharing the image Priyanka Bose added, “Dear @kritisanon, firstly, I want to congratulate you on all your Bollywood success. I truly enjoyed watching your last film. @cosmoindia , thank you for supporting me through my career. I have grown up watching all the empowering things you have portrayed through the years. Images are powerful. Like words. They leave an impact. It has a presence that will linger on for years beyond our lives. I just want to understand, what about this image , is so iconic? An endangered, enigmatic beauty, hanging in the air like that, is not my idea of an aesthetically pleasing and empowering or steering anything. I am really asking you… in all sincerity… how does this go up as an icon in My history? In fact @cosmoindia you just disempowered @kritisanon and my generation a whole lot.”
Back on the film front, Kriti Sanon who was last seen in Bareilly Ki Barfi will next be seen in Luka Chuppi, Arjun Patiala, Panipat and Housefull 4 along with a special appearance in Kalank.
