Bollywood actresses Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi have repeatedly been victims of body shaming due to excess body fat. This time, a film was made on the subject of body shaming. Named ‘Double XL’. Sonakshi and Huma were surprised by the teaser for the film. Through the recently released trailer for the film, it was understood that the ‘Double XL’ team would bring to light the very sensitive topics of personal life through humor. The film shows the story of breaking the table, the story of friendship, and the story of the realization of dreams.
Our society has established certain restrictive beauty standards. You are not beautiful unless you fall into this chart. If you’re dark-skinned, ugly, or overweight, you’re a “fat elephant or hippo.” The story of this film tells the problems faced by two women who wear double XL clothes while chasing their dreams. This story is about two women. They don’t fit into the mold of society’s traditional idea of the female body. They are not fat, or perfect, but why would they listen to their dream? One wants to be a sports presenter and the other dreams of working in fashion.
Just because the plus size will be destroyed? Huma Qureshi stars as Marathi sports presenter Rajshri Trivedi in the film. On the other hand, Shatrughan’s daughter Sonakshi played the role of Saira Khanna, a seamstress from Delhi. In the released trailer, two girls in double XL dresses have a fateful conversation in a bathroom. It doesn’t take them long to realize their pain. Then they reached London chasing their dreams. At the end of the movie’s trailer, Sonakshi was heard saying to the boys – The demands of the ‘boys’ are very strange. Girls want a large bra size, but the size will be narrow and thin. If something is asked of you, big or small, where will you hide your face? Then the two burst out laughing.
“Double XL” is directed by Satram Ramani. Shikhar Dhawan plays Sonakshi’s love interest Zaheer Iqbal in a cameo role in the film. This star batsman of the Indian cricket team got caught early in the trailer.
Regarding the film, the director said in several Indian media, “In 2022, heavy-looking women must be given various sneers.” Undesirable words are also heard by various people in society. A slim figure is ideal for girls. Sometimes it even reaches the level of disrespect. I made this film to raise my voice against this practice of body shaming. Tried to highlight the very sensitive subject of personal life through humor. The movie “Double XL” is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vipul D Shah, Rajesh Bahl, Ashwin Varde, Saqib Saleem, Huma Qureshi and Mudassar Aziz. The film will be released tomorrow across India. Sharing a photo on social media recently announcing the movie’s release date, Sonakshi wrote in the caption – “Meet Saira Khanna”. They say she can’t be a fashion designer. He is bigger than his own clothes, they say. But guess what, his dreams are bigger and he sets out to make them come true!
Like many Bollywood stars, Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi have struggled with body shame issues since childhood. Because they were overweight. These two Bollywood divas talked about their “Double XL” in an interview. Recently, while promoting their movie, Sonakshi Sinha-Huma Qureshi talked about how ashamed they are of their bodies. Huma says, “I love to eat, so I never thought about calories. As a result, was always overweight. I have heard many things about this. On the other hand, Sonakshi said, “When I weighed 95 kg, I was called by different names.”
Sonakshi and Huma had to put on weight to fit into the characters in the film, which was shot in different locations in India and London. Huma Qureshi said, “In this movie, I play the role of a simple girl named Rajshree Trivedi. A girl growing up in a small town has a heavenly dream.
But I was scared at first when I heard about gaining weight for the role of Rajshree. All the people close to me and whom I trusted a lot, each of them forbade me to make the film. Their words – I will make a big mistake if I do the movie. This is where my career will end. But I didn’t listen to anyone’s words. I hardened my mind. I decided to do the movie ‘Double XL’. The character of Rajshree in this film gave me a taste of liberation. Made me mentally stronger. The movie made me tough and confident.”
