'Double XL' trailer: Huma Qureshi-Sonakshi Sinha challenge beauty standards
The makers of the upcoming Bollywood film Double XL have dropped its much-awaited trailer ahead of the film's theatrical premiere on November 4. Starring Huma Qureshi and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead, the film is centered around body positivity in a fun yet thoughtful manner. The trailer, which runs for over three minutes shows us some highlights of the movie, amping up our expectations.
Why does this story matter?
- Billed to be a slice-of-life comedy-drama, the film is expected to promote body positivity as it revolves around two plus-sized women who are on a mission to break the stereotypes of beauty standards.
- While several Indian films have been indulging in body-shaming through distasteful jokes, this film would be a need of the hour to change the perception of people.
Qureshi, Sinha throw light on issues faced by plus-sized people
The 3:03-minute-long trainer opens with Qureshi's Rajshree Trivedi being asked by cricketer Shikhar Dhawan to dance with him in a grand ballroom, only to realize that it was a dream as she gets woken up by her mother. The aspiring cricket presenter happens to meet Sonakshi Sinha's Saira Khanna. They instantly connect as they both face the hardships of being plus-sized women.
Mahat Raghavendra, Zaheer Iqbal make brief appearances
Tamil actor Mahat Raghavendra and Sinha's rumored boyfriend Zaheer Iqbal make brief appearances in the trailer. They form a team with the central characters and how their life changes after they meet makes up for the rest of the story.
