According to Bollywood Hungama, Bala was released overseas across over 550 screens. From the Australian cinemas, the film raked in $18,308 (Rs 13.06 lakh) and $10,850 (Rs 7.74 lakh) from New Zealand.

In a recent interview with Press Trust of India, Khurrana called Bala the "most precious" films he has been a part of so far. "I'm humbled with the response and delighted that I have again backed a film that has its heart at the right place," he added.

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.

Gautam and Khurrana have previously worked together on Vicky Donor while Pednekar has shared screen space with him in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Dum Laga Ke Haisha.
