The actor plays a man suffering from premature balding who becomes a big butt of jokes among his people. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles. While Bhumi plays a dusky small town girl who is obsessed with fair skin, Yami plays a Tik-Tok star that Ayushmann loses his heart to. However, Ayushmann does not reveal his balding head secret to Yami and tries every trick to hide it. The movie marks the reunion of Ayushmann Khurrana with his most successful on-screen pairing - Bhumi Pednekar.
This will be their third film together after Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. It also marks the reunion of Ayushmann Khurrana with his first co-star Yami. The two reunite after their debut film, Vicky Donor.
Bala's subject was similar to last week's Ujda Chaman, which also became a cause of a big controversy. Dr. Zeus had also accused the Bala makers of ripping off his old hit song Don't Be Shy after which the Bala makers released an official statement saying that they have all the required rights to the song.
