American model Kendall Jenner's Vogue India cover with actor Sushant Singh Rajput has made Twitter very angry. The cover celebrates Vogue India's 10th anniversary, and the magazine's decision to use Kendall, 21, has been accused of whitewashing. Shot by Mario Testino and located in Samode Palace, the photoshoot with Kendall and Sushant was shaping up to be legendary - except that a lot of folks aren't pleased that Kendall Jenner was picked over Indian models and actresses. 'Why Kendall Jenner instead of someone who's actually brown?' Twitter would like to know. Tweets like the ones below have snowed Vogue India under asking why. And there are plenty more:

Kendall Jenner, a member of the Kardashian empire that stretches across reality TV, fashion and social media, is only just putting another controversy behind her. She was hired to endorse the ill-starred luxury Fyre Festival scheduled to be held in the Bahamas days ago and that ended up as an utter debacle - acts pulled out over payment issues, lack of organisation and facilities meant that festival-goers found themselves in what has been described as 'refugee camp'-like circumstances, and the festival was finally cancelled. Rapper Ja Rule, one of the organisers, tweeted to say that 'guests were safe' and would be refunded.
Sushant Singh Rajput, with a new film coming up in Raabta, currently has high visibility. He has also been shot by Mario Testino in his 'towel series' - as has actress Katrina Kaif.
Raabta, co-starring Kriti Sanon and Jim Sarbh and featuring Deepika Padukone in a special song appearance, releases on June 9.
