2022 might be one of Huma Qureshi's most exciting years as an artist. Along with starring in Maharani's second season and starring in the Tarla Dalal biopic's filming, the actor has transitioned into production with Double XL. For her debut production, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Qureshi has picked a topic close to her heart: body shaming.

During an interview with Mid Day, she recalled that, as women, they deal with this problem every day. Not just women in front of the camera are subject to body shaming. The matter is relevant. So many ladies have come up to her and said that to her.

She also has a personal connection to Double XL because she endured years of fat-shaming. In a field where unrealistic beauty standards have long prevailed, actors like Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, and Huma Qureshi have long promoted body positivity.

She further shared that people are so enmeshed with the issue that they make disparaging remarks while staring at women's bodies. Someone's self-confidence is damaged by body shame. They start a constructive dialogue when they make a movie about it and use their platform as actors to raise awareness. They wanted to develop an engaging movie that would change people's perspectives, not a documentary.

According to rumours, Qureshi changed physically for the Satram Ramani-directed film. She keeps quiet about it, saying only that she put on weight for this movie. The actor has pushed herself to the limit in all three areas: physically, psychologically, and spiritually. The actor claimed that fans are going to have a tremendous surprise. She can tell that much.

Earlier, the actor told Variety that there are ways to standardise beauty across all countries, and they almost try to teach young girls that if they don't conform to a certain body type, they are not attractive, cherished, exceptional, or respected.
