In what could be a great news to the fans, Team India ODI skipper Shikhar Dhawan’s first look of Huma Qureshi-Sonakshi starrer Double XL has now gone viral on social media.

Gabbar (as Dhawan is popularly known) is all set to make his Bollywood debut in the upcoming movie, which is likely to be released on November 4.

Expressing his excitement about the movie, Dhawan said he is looking forward to his role in the movie.

“As a cricketer playing for the nation, life is always very hectic. One of my favourite pastimes is to watch good entertaining movies. When this opportunity came to me and I heard the story, it made a deep impact on me. This is a lovely message for the whole society, and I hope a lot of young girls and boys will keep pursuing their dreams no matter what,” the attacking south-paw said in an official statement.

Huma shared Shikhar Gabbar’s new look on Instagram, where the aggressive opener is seen in a snap, dancing in a Tuxedo with the actress.
