From last two years, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, Windows Production house are releasing movies that talks about the problems that many woman has to face in our society in their everyday life. Next year they will continue this trend with their next production titled as Fatafati which will talk about the issue of body shaming. The film will be directed by Aritra Mukherjee who had made his directorial debut with this year’s International Women’s Day release Brahma Janen Gopon Kammoti. Zinia Sen has written the story and screenplay and Samragnee Bandopadhyay has written the dialogues. Both these ladies were also associated with Brahma Janen Gopon Kammoti in same role.
The story of Fatafati revolves around a woman who has been a victim of fat shaming for her whole life but she has never allowed these mean comments to discourage her and finally she emerges as a fashion influencer. Actress Aparajita Addhya will be seen playing this character. Although women have to face it more in our society but body shamming is not an issue limited to one specific gender only, many men also has to face this at different stages of their life. Ambarish Bhattacharya who will be seen playing Aparajita’s husband in the film will also be seen as a victim of body shaming. Both Aparajita Addhya and Ambarish Bhattacharya are the real life examples of people who have never allowed their weight issue to be an obstacle for their career. Both of them are talented and well appreciated actors.
Body shaming which can be explained as making fun of people for their body shape is a deeply rooted problem in every field of our society. Sometimes the comments are passed very casually without even considering that it may hurt the person at the receiving end. In fact a larger part of our society are so habituated with this that they don’t even think that making fun of a person for his figure is actually offensive. It is really good to see that journalist turned script writer Zinia Sen is trying to highlight this issue in a mass appealing format.
