On September 22, 2022, the first glimpse of the upcoming comedy Double XL, starring Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi, was unveiled. The brief 30-second teaser, which showcases the protagonists' good looks and chemistry, was posted by the movie's production company, T-Series on their official YouTube page. The crowd appreciated the small preview and showed great anticipation for more.
The teaser is hilarious, and Huma and Sonakshi are seen poking fun at boys with double standards. The duo are sitting on the bench and talking in the Bihari and Haryanvi languages. They talk about the society that humiliates plus-size girls. Huma says, “No matter how much you tuck your tummy in, jeans always get stuck around the thighs.” To this, with her distinctive Haryanavi accent, Sonakshi replies, “And boys’ demands are weird. They want a big breast and a small waist.”

After a pause, she says to those boys, in a semi-angry tone, “Tumse kuch chhota-bada maang liya to kahan jaaoge tum (What if we ask you for something big or small).” The trailer is praiseworthy and it has been clearly seen that both Huma and Sonakshi have put on weight and worked hard for Double XL.
Zaheer Iqbal, who will also be seen in the film, said, “Sonu and Huma did their diet as they were supposed to put on weight. They put on 15-20 kg for the film. So they were just eating and eating. It was basically action, cut and burger lao (bring food). That's all I remember from the shoot.”
Moreover, it's time for a movie that gives plus-size women the representation they deserve. As we have already seen, a lot of famous people have already spoken about it. They have openly discussed it and condemned those who view others through the lens of outward appearance as well as such irrational standards. And now the movie will surely encourage many plus-size girls and women to increase their confidence.
The film was directed by Satramm Ramani and written by Mudassar Aziz and is slated to hit the big screen on October 14, 2022. Mahat Raghavendra is also starring in a talented ensemble star cast. The film is billed as a comedy-packed that breaks all the stereotypes, and now fans are eagerly waiting for the makers to drop the trailer soon.
