Ayushman Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar reunite for Dinesh Vijan’s next, Bala
After the success of Stree, producer Dinesh Vijan announces a quirky comedy named ‘Bala’ starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. The film has Ayushmann as a prematurely balding guy and Bhumi as a dusky small-town girl.
After Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, the duo who are gearing up to complete a hat-trick will reunite for this quirky laugh riot.
The film will be directed by Amar Kaushik who directed one of this year’s biggest hits, the horror-comedy Stree. The film is expected to roll in March 2019 and is set to release in September same year.
Bala revolves around a guy who is balding prematurely and a dusky girl who is grappling with her own complexes brought on by her complexion. “Through their journey, the film impresses on the fact that most of us are usually attracted to outward beauty and don’t go beyond that to understand the real person. That’s one of the reasons so many relationships are falling apart today!” says Dinesh
The maker of off-beat entertainers like Stree and Irrfan Khan’s educative Hindi Medium, Dinesh reasons, “It’s a hilarious story but at the same time, it makes you think. The two characters are very interesting and easy to relate with, so is their small-town milieu.”
