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. While the film serves as Khurrana and Yami Gautam's third film to enter the coveted Rs.100 crore club, it will be second 100 crore grosser for Bhumi Pednekar.

While Khurrana battles premature balding, Pednekar plays a dusky complexioned girl combating prejudice coming her way. 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.

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.

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.
