Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bala is continuing its dream run at the box office. The film is inching closer to the Rs 100 crore mark. In just 12 days of release, the Bala has recorded a score of Rs 95 crore. Sharing the box-office figures, Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, ''Bala is rock-steady... [Week 2] Fri 3.76 cr, Sat 6.73 cr, Sun 8.01 cr, Mon 2.25 cr, Tue 2.05 cr. Total: Rs 95.04 cr. India biz.''
The film collected Rs 10.5 crore on the first day of its release and has become the biggest opener of Ayushmann’s career. Ayushmann’s previous films like-Dream Girl, Badhaai Ho, Article 15, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Andhadhun had earned Rs 10.05 crore, 7.35 crore, Rs 5.02 crore, Rs 2.71 crore and Rs 2.42 crore, respectively on their first day at the box office.
In the film, Ayushmann 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.
Thanking his fans for all the support, Ayushmann recently shared picture of a man on a cycle, rushing past a poster of the film and captioned it, ''Today, this film is not mine. It is yours. This story is not just Bala’s. It’s for anyone like Bala, who walks the streets searching for themselves. Thanks for the love.''
Ayushmann will be next seen sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in Gulabo Sitabo. He is currently shooting for Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, a sequel to his 2017 film Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
