How Do We Talk About Cultural Appropriation in Malaysia?

Local actress Mira Filzah was accused of cultural appropriation recently when she uploaded photos of herself on Instagram wearing traditional Indian clothing, while promoting a contact lens brand. We discuss where we should draw the line between cultural appropriation and appreciation, and if we even need to discuss cultural appropriation in Malaysia in the first place.
