Mumbai: Cricket and acting attract a huge number of people in India. People from all walks of life are attracted to cricketers’ performances on the field and Bollywood stars’ acting prowess on the big screen. Several pairs of cricketers and actors hit the headlines on numerous occasions. In a special cameo, Shikhar Dhawan will be seen in Satram Ramani’s Double XL alongside Huma Qureshi.
The movie’s recently released trailer, which also features Sonakshi Sinha, follows the journey of two obese women as they deal with body shaming and the constant judgement that comes with it. Due to its relatable plot, the trailer sparked a lot of interest. Fans were thrilled to see cricket player Shikhar Dhawan dancing with Huma Qureshi in a dream scene in the trailer.
Director Satram Ramani explains why he chose Shikhar for the part by stating that he wanted to cast somebody who was both elite and desi. Shikhar seemed ideal for the part, but Satram wasn’t sure if he was up to the challenge.
Eventually, the film’s producer, Saqib Saleem, who is in fact Huma’s brother, called up Shikhar, and the latter seemed quite open to doing the part. According to reports, Shikhar liked the film’s plot and insisted that it be made. Not only that, Shikhar had a great time on the set because of his cheerful nature and spreading laughter, which kept the atmosphere charged up with his jokes.
Double XL, also starring Zaheer Iqbal, is set to hit the silver screens on November 4.
