Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha is one of the most loved actresses in the industry. Since her debut, Sonakshi has been under the scanner for her weight. She has been a victim of online trolling. Now, the actress has teamed up with Huma Qureshi for a project titled ‘Double XL’ that puts body and weight-shaming into perspective with a good dose of humour. In a recent interview, Sonakshi weighed on the topic of body shaming.

She told ETimes, “It hit home so hard when the script came to both of us. I would never have done that film with anyone else but Huma. It’s so important to both of us. Body and weight-shaming have happened to both of us for years in our lives. It happened from the beginning of our careers in this line, and it still happens. It hasn’t stopped.

She added, “No matter what size you are, people are always discussing it, which I think is bordering on the unnecessary now. We talk endlessly about cutting out discrimination on the basis of sex, colour and race. Why leave out body size and weight?

She went on to add, “Size should also be on that list of things that we should not be discriminated against. It was so important to do a film like this that tells you about two individuals – two women, who are talented and believe in living it up on their terms. The question is: why is that so hard to digest for people if it happens in real life?

Sonakshi and Huma had shared the teaser of Double XL a few months ago. Huma essays the role of Rajshri Trivedi and Sonakshi plays Saira Khanna. Sonakshi had shared the teaser and captioned it, “Size Large… Sapne Extra Large #DoubleXL (Weight) Wait ends, Summer 2022! #baatmeinWAZANhai.
