Actress Huma Qureshi reveals that the story of her upcoming film ‘Double XL’ with Sonakshi Sinha began as a funny conversation in her life as all the actors were moaning about “weight after lockdown”.

Huma shared a note on Instagram about how the idea came about.

Huma Qureshi wrote: “What started as a fun conversation with my closest friends and family – Sonakshi, Zaheer, Saqib and Mudassar, literally in my living room, is the result of this film now. All the actors were lamenting about the ‘weight after lockdown’ that we had achieved and Mudassar made up a story around it.

“This story gained more and more friends as well as partners in the months that followed as we accompanied us on this journey. It is a lovingly written and made film.”

Huma Qureshi then thanked all those involved in the dream of ‘Double XL’ and made it a reality.

“Now we are releasing this film in theatres. If someone had told me, when I came to Mumbai almost a decade ago, that I would be instrumental in supporting content that would not only resonate with me but also have the potential to strike a chord with many others, I would I will not believe. But then, dreams do come true!”

Huma Qureshi said: “And that’s what we Alemen 3 – Saqib, Mudassar and I. believe in our company. Our collective dream. To tell stories that travel beyond the ordinary. The three of us are different as people. And still united by our love for cinema. Our first child is ready to open his eyes and have fun in the sun.”

Huma concluded: “This film is for all those who dare to dream big!!! (deliberate joke).”

The film is a slice of life social comedy drama, for which both the actresses underwent massive body transformation and also accumulated extra pounds for their roles in the film, which has been shot extensively in India and UK.

The film traces the journey of two plus-size women, one from the heartland of Uttar Pradesh and the other from urban New Delhi, and also stars Zaheer Iqbal and Mahat Raghavendra.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar, Vipul D. Shah, Rajesh Behl and Ashwin Varde, Saqib Saleem, Huma Qureshi and Mudassar Aziz, ‘Double XL’ is all set to hit the theaters on October 14.
