The song Besharam Rang, featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, has been making the rounds since it was released. A plus-sized social media influencer recently shared a video of herself on Instagram showing off her dance skills on the trending dance number.
Tanvi Geetha Ravishankar, a plus-size influencer, recreated the song, and the results are astounding! Tanvi, who replicates Deepika Padukone in appearance, defies stereotypes by dancing fearlessly to the song along the beach. Captioning the post she wrote, ‘Be Besharam. If doing what you love, wearing what you like & living the life you want makes you “Besharam” in someone’s eyes, it’s absolutely fine. We’re entering 2023 and the world is gonna get nothing less than our UNAPOLOGETIC SELF’.

She was upset, though, when the academy rejected her. She was asked to leave a dance academy’s programme in 2011 due to her weight. According to Tanvi, her mentor once told her, “You already have 99 out of 100 requirements for a dancer. All you need is a body,” She recalled them stating that they didn’t want to take a chance by showcasing her due to her size.
Tanvi’s passion of style and fashion brought her to Lakme Fashion Week, where she found her true calling. Tanvi Geetha Ravishankar was one of the 10 internet-famous fashionistas to walk in the first plus-size fashion show. Tanvi started a blog to share her journey toward body positivity and to inspire other women to feel good about their bodies. She won the Cosmopolitan BodyLove Influencer 2022 award, which led to immediate praise. Tanvi has experienced her fair share of setbacks and failures, so life was not always rosy.
For those who struggle with their bodies, she believes that self-acceptance is important. She said, “To keep us alive and moving is what our body does. So stop anticipating a particular appearance. You deserve all the love, respect, and care in the world because you are amazing and gorgeous. Stop looking to other people for approval; instead, accept and be happy with who you are. I’ll be by myself when the outside love arrives.”
