Cricketer Shikhar Dhawan is all set to make his Bollywood debut with the upcoming film Double XL. A photo of the cricketer from the movie was shared online on Tuesday (October 11) and has since then gone viral across various social media platforms. He is seen with actress Huma Qureshi in the picture who is sporting a beautiful red gown. Sonakshi Sinha will also be seen in this flick. 

During an interview, Dhawan said, "One of my favorite 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."

Satram Ramani, who is famously known for his 2021 film Helmet, has helmed Double XL. The film has been given the green light for a direct OTT release and will therefore be made available to watch on Netflix from November 4 onwards. The film's release will be challenged as it will be locking horns with two big Bollywood movies - the Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter starter Phone Bhoot and Aasmaan Bhardwaj's multi starer drama Kuttey - which are all heading for theatrical premieres on the same day.

Double XL is touted to be a slice-of-life comedy-drama, that will trace the journey of two plus-sized women, Rajshree Trivedi (Qureshi) from Meeruti and Saira Khanna (Sinha) from New Delhi, who trying to break stereotypes as they navigate society's beauty standards. The film also stars Zaheer Iqbal and Mahat Raghavendra in supporting roles.
