Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi starrer ‘Double XL’ is making news for all the right reasons.
It’s a story of two plus-sized women seeking their dreams. Directed by Satramm Ramani, the slice-of-life comedy drama challenges body weight stereotypes and sends out the strong message that if you can dream it, you can achieve it.
Joining Sonakshi and Huma in this mad adventure that spans across New Delhi, Meerut and Mumbai are the film’s two male protagonists, Zaheer Iqbal and Mahat Raghavendra.
And now it’s time to reveal another big surprise from the film. Celebrated Indian ace cricketer Shikhar Dhawan will also be seen in ‘Double XL’, in a very special appearance.
Making the announcement on social media, Huma wrote, “Cat is out of the bag.. Finally @shikhardofficial”.
Shikhar explained that his decision was a rather instinctive one. “As an athlete playing for the nation, life is always very hectic. One of my favourite pastimes is to watch good entertaining films. When this opportunity came to me and I heard the story, it made a deep impact on me. This is a lovely message for the whole society and I hope a lot of young girls and boys will keep pursuing their dreams no matter what,” he said in a statement.
The film is presented by Gulshan Kumar, T-Series, Wakaoo Films & Mudassar Aziz. ‘Double XL’ is set to hit the cinemas on November 4.
