Huma Qureshi Wraps Anti-Body Shaming Foil ‘Double XL’

Huma Qureshi, one of the stars of Zack Snyder’s Netflix film Army of the Dead, has wrapped up filming on the anti-body shaming film Double XL.

Qureshi, who stars in the film alongside Sonakshi Sinha, is also making her debut as a producer through her company, Elemen3. Directed by Satram Ramani (“Helmet”).

“All cultures have ways of standardizing beauty, and we try to almost tell young girls that [if] You don’t stick to any particular body type, you’re not beautiful, you’re not appreciated, you’re not special, you’re not appreciated,” Qureshi said diversity. “Why don’t we see models representing real women’s bodies? Why don’t we see actresses of all shapes and sizes? They exist, so why don’t you see that on the big screen? Because that leads to the fact that many young women and men grow up with complexes, as if they weren’t good enough. It leads to some very unhealthy lifestyle choices.”

“For me, to be a woman and to have lived this journey, and I’m sure I can speak for Sonakshi and many other actresses out there, it’s something very personal – it’s something we’ve lived, that we live every time we do go out,” Qureshi said. “Why shouldn’t we talk about the impact they’re having on some of those dreams, someone’s life, some of those journeys? So in that sense, Double XL is a very personal film.

“I’m very proud, not only as an actor, but this will be my first time as a producer and I feel like this is something I have to show the world. That’s something I want to hang my name on. Because it’s entertaining, it’s captivating. At the same time, I think it uplifts you and empowers women.”

The film, which is partly set in the UK, is slated to hit theaters in May or June.

The actress is currently basking in the two box office successes of Hindi language film Gangubai Kathiawadi, in which she has a cameo appearance, and Tamil language film Valimai, opposite Ajith Kumar, one of the leading men of South Indian cinema. Qureshi witnessed firsthand the hysteria that accompanies the release of a big-star film in South India in Chennai.

“It was absolutely packed and people were popping crackers and when my car pulled in they put flowers on it and it was very special,” says Qureshi. ” He [Ajith Kumar] has that kind of fan base over there where his films are nothing short of a mini festival. And it’s all the love from the fans and how much they look forward to the experience of seeing his films in theaters. The pandemic caused many delays for “Valimai” to see the light of day. I was actually pretty overwhelmed. I have never experienced something like that.”

Next up for Qureshi is Tarla, a biopic by famed Indian food writer Tarla Dalal, with Dangal writer Piyush Gupta making his directorial debut. The film is produced by Nitesh Tiwari, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Ronnie Screwvalas RSVP. The actor was drawn to the “beautiful” script, which is about a woman pursuing her dream against all odds.

Also coming is Netflix crime comedy Monica, O My Darling from Vasan Bala (Toronto winner The Man Who Feels No Pain).

Qureshi found success in India with ZEE5 series “Mithya” and SonyLIV series “Maharani” and received worldwide attention for “Army of the Dead”.

“Zack has really invested in trying to create a new kind of zombie universe. The appreciation and feedback was phenomenal for this too. Of course, there’s always talk of possible spinoffs,” Qureshi said of Army of the Dead. “I think the universe will keep expanding,” Qureshi said, but she didn’t have any concrete information about a possible sequel.

“I want to be that performer, that actor, that artist that deals with different content that is independent of territory and so I want to be part of a great series, I want to be part of a movie that comes from South India but it’s real a pan-Indian experience – or maybe I’d like to work in the West and be part of a global streamer’s film,” says Qureshi. “I feel like we have that choice as actors today.”
