Actor Kriti Sanon, who is in Zambia for an adventurous holiday, interacted with cheetahs and giraffes. The actor shared selfies and videos of her time in Lusaka, Zambia on Instagram.

Kriti shared a picture of herself, sharing the frame with a cheetah and captioned it, “He wanted a selfie!! Couldn’t say no.. #Zambia.” While a few celebrities and fans liked the picture, there were many who criticised the actor for posing with wild animals.


A fan wrote, “Bollywood is a double standard place. They support peta but they also promote animal tourism. Just disgusting.” Another wrote, “Please stop promoting the captivity of wild animals.. You being an actress and a public icon should have been more responsible and sensitive.” One more user raised doubts about the wild animals being sedated and wrote, “That cheetah looks stoned.”
