Ayushmann Khurrana is having a dream run at the BO... With #Bala - his seventh hit in a row - his choice of stories + BO earnings mirrors the fact that the actor is on a roll... Very rarely does one see a scoreboard like this in our industry... Wow, just wow! @ayushmannk— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) November 12, 2019
The film collected Rs 10.5 crore on the first day of its release and has become the biggest opener of Ayushmann’s career. Ayushmann’s previous films like-Dream Girl, Badhaai Ho, Article 15, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Andhadhun had earned Rs 10.05 crore, 7.35 crore, Rs 5.02 crore, Rs 2.71 crore and Rs 2.42 crore, respectively on their first day at the box office.
Thanking his fans for all the support, Ayushmann recently shared picture of a man on a cycle, rushing past a poster of the film and captioned it, ''Today, this film is not mine. It is yours. This story is not just Bala’s. It’s for anyone like Bala, who walks the streets searching for themselves. Thanks for the love.''
In the film, Ayushmann plays a man suffering from premature balding who becomes a big butt of jokes among his people. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles. While Bhumi plays a dusky small town girl who is obsessed with fair skin, Yami plays a Tik-Tok star that Ayushmann loses his heart to. However, Ayushmann does not reveal his balding head secret to Yami and tries every trick to hide it.
Bala's subject was similar to last week's Ujda Chaman, which also became a cause of a big controversy. Dr. Zeus had also accused the Bala makers of ripping off his old hit song Don't Be Shy after which the Bala makers released an official statement saying that they have all the required rights to the song.
