We all know that Shikhar Dhawan has delivered astonishing performances in cricket while playing for the Indian cricket team quite a lot of times. Shikhar is known for his marvelous batting style on the field and his sense of humor off the field. Now, Huma Qureshi and Sonakshi Sinha’s upcoming film Double XL will mark the cricketer’s Bollywood debut.
A new clip features Shikhar in a black suit and his trademark haircut, dancing with Huma, who is looking stunning in a red gown.

Double XL is a comedy-drama film that revolves around the journey of two plus-size women — sports presenter Rajshree Trivedi played by Huma Qureshi from Meerut and fashion designer Saira Khanna played by Sonakshi Sinha from New Delhi. They both navigate society’s beauty standards.
The movie is directed by Satramm Ramani of Helmet fame and will be released on Netflix on November 4.
Shikhar Dhawan revealed that the story of the film made a deep impact on him, and he said agreed to do the project.
“As an athlete playing for the nation, life is always very hectic. 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.”
Last weekend, Huma talked about her character with a motion poster with the caption,
“Meet Rajshri Trivedi. They say she can never be a sports presenter. They say she is too BIG to be on television… but guess what! Her passion is BIGGER and she’ll prove them all wrong!”
Sonakshi unveiled her character poster and wrote,
“Meet Saira Khanna. They say she cannot be a fashion designer. They say she is too BIG for her own clothes… but guess what! Her dreams are BIGGER and she’s out to achieve them!”
The film also features Zaheer Iqbal and Mahat Raghavendra. It is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vipul D Shah, Ashwin Varde, Rajesh Bahl, Saqib Saleem, Huma Qureshi and Mudassar Aziz and is presented by T-Series, Wakaoo Films, and Reclining Seats Cinema.
