We are keen on sharing this exciting & highly captivating narrative with the audience of Japan, and hoping they will enjoy and embrace the film it just as much as the viewers did from the other parts of the world.”

The film also earned Khurrana his first National Award for Best Actor (Male). It also bagged a National Award for Best Hindi Film for the year. The story of the film revolves around Ayushmann's character, who plays a blind (?) pianist, and unwittingly gets involved in the murder of a former actor (played by Anil Dhawan). Tabu and Radhika Apte, who also share screen space with Khurrana in this film, have also garnered considerable praise for their work on the film. While the veteran actress plays the role of an antagonist, Radhika is seen as Khurrana's love interest.

Ayushmann's recent release Bala talks about an unconventional subject of premature balding. Featuring Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam in the lead, Bala has now ranked as the actor's highest grossing film, in terms of opening-day box office collections.
