Ayushmann Khurrana's new release Bala, is on its way to hit the Rs 100 crore mark soon. The film, currently in its third week at the domestic box office, has raked in Rs 92.99 crore.

Over the second week, Bala grossed Rs 3.76 crore on Friday, Rs 6.73 crore on Saturday, Rs 8.01 crore on Sunday. This Monday (18 November), the comedy raked in Rs 2.25 crore.

Box Office India notes that Bala crossed Luka Chuppi's earnings within a span of 11 days.

Here are the latest box office figures

While Khurrana battles premature balding, Bhumi Pednekar plays a dusky complexioned girl combating prejudice coming her way. Yami Gautam is seen as a local Tik-Tok celebrity, whom Khurrana's character courts and eventually marries. Saurabh Shukla, Jaaved Jaaferi, Seema Pahwa, and Abhishek Banerjee too are part of the film.

Bala has become Ayushmann Khurrana's third film, after Badhaai Ho and Dream Girl, to cross the Rs 40 crore mark in opening weekend earnings. When the film mints Rs 100 crore, it will become Khurrana and Gautam's third film and Pednekar's second to reach the milestone.

Pednekar's character received backlash as she wore heavy make-up to reach the dusky skin tone required in the story. However, in an interview the actress said that her decision to take up the role has been called "brave" by some.

"Everyone has been telling me that I have been brave to play this role but I have been telling them that I see myself as an artist, someone who wants to shed herself and become a character in the film because that’s what is important. I can’t always be thinking about how I’m looking on screen because I will do disservice to the vision of the film and the character I have willingly chosen to do," she told Deccan Chronicle.

In defense of 83: Why Kabir Khan's cricket drama is as pan-India a film as there can be one

What is a 'pan-Indian' film? Full of VFX and action? In that case, yes 83 did not have tacky slow-mo sequences or bodies getting pummeled by the hero, but the action on the field was poetry and the world-building authentic.
