Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, and Yami Gautam starrer Bala took a flying start at the box office. The movie collected Rs 10.15 crore on day one, and then showed a huge jump on Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday it collected Rs 15.73 crore and on Sunday the collection was Rs 18.07 crore. In three days, the Amar Kaushik directorial has collected Rs 43.95 crore which is excellent.

Even for Maddock Films, it is the highest opening weekend. Producer Dinesh Vijan stated, “This weekend has not only been special for Bala but also for us at Maddock films, it’s the highest weekend for the company and it’s truly overwhelming. We always strive to do better with each film, and this love and appreciation give us the confidence to continue taking risks and backing great content.”
Maddock had four releases this year, Luka Chuppi, Arjun Patiala, Made In China and Bala. While Luka Chuppi and Bala have turned out to be successful, Arjun Patiala and Made In China failed to make a mark at the box office.
Well, Bala is also Ayushmann’s seventh hit in a row and even Yami had a great 2019 with two hits like Uri: The Surgical Strike and Bala. Talking about Bhumi, 2019 has been a fantastic year for her as she proved her versatility with films like Sonchiriya, Saand Ki Aankh, and Bala. She will end the year with Pati Patni Aur Woh which is slated to release on 6th December 2019.
