After appearing in ‘Sarabjit’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ last year, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has signed another film titled ‘Fanney Khan’. The movie will unite the actress will her ‘Taal’ co-star Anil Kapoor. But do you know what made the 43-year-old signed the film?
Well, the reason the actress signed the actress is that it deals with the topic of body shaming. "Stop body shaming and be yourself - is the strong message that Fanney Khan wants to give out. Body shaming happens when someone overweight is humiliated by making mocking or critical comments about their body shape or size. Aishwarya has undergone that post her pregnancy after she gave birth to Aaradhya and it’s something she feels strongly about. She feels everybody is special and unique and possesses distinct talents and body shaming is terrible as the target gets humiliated and depressed. Normally the actress takes a couple of months to finalize a script but this time when Atul approached her, along with the producers of the film, Prernaa Arora and Bhushan Kumar, Aishwarya read the script, heard the first narration and signed on the dotted line in two weeks. She was always the first choice for the team and is extremely excited about the film and the message it spreads,” revealed a source.
The source further stated that the story of ‘Fanney Khan’ revolves around Anil Kapoor’s daughter, who is fat and is obsessed with losing weight. Ash plays an accomplished singer just like Madonna and Beyonce who inspires the girl to not to worry about her weight but be herself. Aishwarya becomes the girl’s inspiration. Aishwarya’s character helps the character to stop thinking about her weight and develop her true potential.
Recently, in an interview with a journalist in Melbourne, Aishwarya had said why she had signed Fanney Khan. She said, “It’s a wonderful idea why again I have chosen to be a part of that narrative.
