Ayushmann Khurrana has done it again. After delivering a massive blockbuster Dream Girl (2019) a couple of weeks ago, the National Award-winning actor has now received outstanding response for his latest film Bala, directed by filmmaker Amar Kaushik for Maddock Films.

While Dream Girl opened its account with an impressive Rs. 10.05 crores, Bala registered an opening of Rs. 10.15 crores, beating Khurrana’s last hit by a small margin. Also starring Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam in important roles, Bala is set to infame the box-office over the weekend.

I only hope that the film entertains the whole of India because only this way we will be able to communicate everything that Bala is trying to say and spark a thought shift.”
