After a fan took to Twitter to thank Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for depicting the inspirational story of a girl fighting body shaming in Fanney Khan, fans hail the filmmaker for his inspirational films. Fans across social media have started a trend on Twitter praising the films of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra right from Rang De Basanti, Bhag Milkha Bhag to 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. Soon after the girl's tweet, fans across Twitter took to the platform to shower the filmmaker with praises.
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 " [sic].
Delivering one of the most relevant and memorable patriotic films of the industry, the filmmaker presented a contemporary take on a revolution in Rang De Basanti. Bhag Milkha Bhag further evoked the patriotic feeling amongst the audience as Rakeysh Mehra brought to screen the life of sports legend Milkha Singh.
The recent release of Rakeysh Mehra's ROMP Fanney Khan revolved around the father-daughter relationship wherein the father struggles hard to fulfill the dreams of his aspirational singer daughter. 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. Rakesysh Omprakash Mehra's Fanney Khan is running successfully all over.
