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.
