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. Check out the video here.
I watched Fanney Khan and I was very touched by Lata’s story. Even I have gone through body shaming and I couldn’t stop myself from making this video. Thank you Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for choosing this topic. It means a lot to young girls like me. @RakeyshOmMehra @fanneykhanfilm pic.twitter.com/OSzzaYBiIc

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.
