“My Closest Companions Said I Was Making Mistake,” Huma Qureshi Reveals Getting Warned For Double XL!

Bollywood beauty Huma Qureshi is one of those actresses who despite coming from a non-filmy background, has made a firm standing in the industry. After having delivered multiple hits, Qureshi is coming up next with, Double XL. The film is about two overweight women challenging societal norms and achieving their life goals. It spreads a beautiful message of embracing oneself just the way we are and moving over our obsession with exterior looks.

To get into the shoes of a plus-sized woman, Rajshri Trivedi, Huma had to put on around 20 kg. Talking about the same, Huma has said that though she enjoyed prepping for her character as she got to eat everything she wanted, some of her closest people warned her against taking up such a role. This is because Huma has often been teased for being a fat girl as a kid and with this film, all those memories are reflected. “I was scared because my closest confidantes and companions told me that I was making a mistake. And it would be the end of my career.” But despite all this, she made up her mind and decided to play the role,” stated Huma.

Furthermore, the Gangs of Wasseypur actress shared it was a liberating experience to portray the character of Rajshri. She quoted, “I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything, shooting this film has been one of the most empowering experiences of my life and it only made me stronger and more confident of myself!”

Double XL is produced by Huma Qureshi’s brother Saqib Saleem, her boyfriend Mudassar Aziz along with Ashwin Varde. The movie will mark Sonakshi Sinha’s first film collaboration with rumored beau Zaheer Iqbal. Besides them, it also stars Mahat Raghavendra. The film will hit the screens on November 4, 2022.
