Recently actor Aahana Kumra decided to give a tribute to ace Indian cricketer Jhulan Goswami. However, she has come under backlash after she shared a post replicating the star Indian cricket player and was dressed in the sports uniform for the same.
Well, the actress was seen wearing dark-face makeup to look like and match the cricketer’s skin tone.
She captioned it, “No I’m not promoting any film. This is purely a tribute to a woman I admire the most after spending time with her and learning her whole story about her journey, her hardships and her passion for the sport! (sic),” Kumra wrote in the post on Instagram as she shared her look from the film. Soon after Kumra’s post, Goswami wrote, “Great job keep it up!! (sic).”
However, netizens find the look offensive as it reiterated colour stereotypes.
Kumra has acted in films like Lipstick Under My Burkha and last seen in the SonyLIV original series Sandwiched Forever with Divya Seth and Kunaal Roy Kapoor.
