Mumbai: Huma Qureshi is one of the few who has defied industry expectations of what a female actor should look like when it comes to body image. The actress has experimented with roles as well as frequently put on weight and altered her appearance for several of her ventures. She recently made a light jab at Bollywood’s preoccupation with size zero. She suggested there was much more to being a Bollywood heroine than that.
In their upcoming comedy film Double XL, Huma Qureshi and Sonakshi Sinha play two plus-sized women who struggle with body image issues and body shaming. The film is directed by Satramm Ramani, and it features Zaheer Iqbal and cricketer Shikhar Dhwan in a cameo. It is Shikhar’s first film appearance. Sonakhi and Huma have been promoting the film through their various interviews.
The size in the US size chart that corresponds to an extra small abroad is referred to as “size zero.” It typically refers to apparel that fits a woman with a waist of 23 inches. The phrase became well-known in India in the 2000s because Kareena Kapoor allegedly lost her weight for her 2008 movie Tashan and wore size zero.
In recent years, the focus on being a size 0 or having a particular appearance has come under scrutiny. Several female actresses, like Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, and Huma Qureshi, have questioned the necessity of dressing a certain way for the camera and refused to comply with this “size zero fetish.”
