Kriti Sanon’s new photoshoot has sparked controversy on the internet. In a shoot for Cosmopolitan India she struck a pose with a giraffe suspended in the air. The picture, as posted on the magazine’s Instagram profile, has been taken at a museum in England’s Aynhoe Park.
No Animals were harmed during the shoot said the post, However the picture did not go well with the people & netizens have called it distasteful for its animal-offensive content.
Have a look at the photo.
“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.✨ PS: Aynhoe Park features taxidermy, hundreds of years old, most from museums. Taxidermy is the art of preserving an animal that died of natural causes, for academic purposes. The giraffe featured here is floating (not hanging, heavens no!) with balloons on its back. An art installation, in what is possibly one of the eclectic yet most majestic mansions in the world. PPS: Cosmo loves, no, is obsessed with animals. We were, possibly, the first magazine in India to ban the featuring of fur, three years ago. No animals were harmed before, during, or after this shoot. We may be guilty of watching too many puppy videos during work hours, though.

What a pathetic depiction is this? Animals are not fashion props. @CosmoIndia what exactly is the need to hand a giraffe in a picture portraying #Kriti Sanon thoughts on Woman Empowerment.@PetaIndia #AnimalCruelty #shameful pic.twitter.com/umgH55exCd

Robert Langdon is on his way to decipher what the f is up with a giraffe that has been hung as if to warn other giraffes about what happens when you cross Kriti Sanon, who is wearing pants covered entirely in gold tassels, and a statue of an armless woman kissing her armless son. pic.twitter.com/qSVAGTFfzw
