Talking about her character in Bala, Yami Gautam says, “I play a popular model from a local city in Lucknow. Unlike a lot of characters shown on screen so far, my character is a local model who is famous in a local town. There have been many occasions in my hay days which I associate with my character on a personal level even though the character is far different and her experiences are different from what I have experienced. The only similarity is that she is a model and I have done that briefly, so there are basics I understand of the character. Of course, this character is very different and something I haven’t done before. But my personal experience as a model has come in handy in certain nuances”.

Directed by Stree (2018) fame director Amar Kaushik, Bala also stars popular actress Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role. The film is set to hit the silver screen on 22nd November, 2019.
