New Delhi: The teaser of Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi’s upcoming film ‘Double XL’ is finally out. Directed by Chatram Ramani, the slice-of-life, comedy-drama questions the body weight stereotypes that have long plagued our society in a very humorous manner.
The makers have also announced the release date of the film. The entertainment film is all set to hit the theaters on October 14, 2022 so viewers don’t have to wait much longer.
Sonakshi and Huma shared the teaser of the film on their social media, which read, “From fries to fun..everything good in life comes in #DoubleXL sizes! 😉”
The 30-second teaser shows Huma and Sonakshi sitting on a bench. Huma quips that the world finds body fat even when a woman wears an oversized loose kurta. “No matter how much you bend your stomach, jeans always stick around the thighs,” she adds. To which Sonakshi replied, “And the demands of boys are different. They have a large bust and small waist. Then he tells the boys, “Tumse kuch chota-pada mang lia du kahan jaoke tum (What if we ask you something big or small)”.
Shot extensively in India and England, ‘Double XL’ explores a journey into the hearts of two plus-size women, one from the heartland of Uttar Pradesh and the other from urban New Delhi, as they navigate society’s often perceived beauty or prettiness. A woman’s size is attractive.
Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi underwent a major body transformation and even piled on extra pounds for their roles in the film. The film stars Zakir Iqbal, Mahat Raghavendra and others.
Gulshan Kumar, T-Series, Wakao Films & Mudassar Aziz are presenting the film in association with T-Series Films. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar, Vipul T Shah, Rajesh Paul & Ashwin Varde, Saqib Saleem, Huma Qureshi & Mudassar Aziz.
