Huma Qureshi and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Double XL’s next outing marks the Bollywood debut of actor Mahat Raghavendra, who is known for his work in Tamil and Telugu cinema. The actor’s first Hindi film will also see popular Tamil star Silambarasan TR aka STR making his debut but as a singer. STR is close friends with Mahat and has sung the song Taali Taali in the film.
