Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra replied to a fan after he received a special message after the release of his recent FANNEY KHAN. While FANNEY KHAN touches upon the issue of body shaming, a girl facing the problem resonated with the film and took to social media to thank the filmmaker.
A fan named Alina Saha uploaded a video to thank Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for choosing to deliver a story like FANNEY KHAN which aptly depicts the struggles of someone who gets body shamed on a daily basis.
FANNEY KHAN revolves around the story of Anil Kapoor and his on-screen daughter Lata Sharma played by Pihu Sand who is an aspirational singer but bound by the society as she is fat shamed at every step in her life.
Resonating with Pihu Sand's character in the film, Alina said, "She is also fat, I am also fat, there is a huge social pressure which fat girls have to go through these days where she is said you can't do certain things because you are fat, you can't wear nice clothes, but actually, we can do it."
She also expressed her views on the song 'Tere Jaisa Tu Hai', saying, "I really liked the song, girls in today's generation can sing this and tell the world that I can do things my way, you do it your way."
Thanking Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for the film, Alina admitted being a fan of the filmmaker and his films.
Touched by the girl's message, Rakesyh Omprakash Mehra replied to the fan saying, " This means a lot to me and my team @ROMPPictures. Thank you ?? ".
A one of its kind musical entertainer, Fanney Khan revolves around the bond between the father and daughter with a pinch of comedy and drama.
