Bala trailer out: Ayushmann Khurrana lets his hair down in Amar Kaushik’s comedy
Ayushmann plays Gaurav Rawat, a salesman in Kanpur who is balding prematurely and falls in love with two women
“Can Amitabh Bachchan play Avtar Gill?” asks Ayushmann Khurrana in the trailer of Bala, Amar Kaushik’s comedy about love and hair loss in small-town India.
Set in Kanpur, the film stars Ayushmann as Gaurav Rawat, a fairness-product salesman who is balding prematurely and hides his insecurities under a baseball cap. Gaurav falls in love with two women: Bhumi Pednekar as a dusky girl and Yami Gautam as a Lucknow model.
As is routine with Ayushmann Khurrana characters trying to keep a secret, he is lying to one of them — his baldness concealed under a mop of fake hair.
Will Bala get caught? Or will he shed his inhibitions and teach us a lesson or two about acceptance and self-worth? Guess we will find out on November 7.
Bala also stars Abhishek Banerjee, Jaaved Jaaferi, and Saurabh Shukla. The film marks Amar Kaushik’s much-awaited follow-up to Stree (2018).
Ayushmann Khurrana was recently seen in Dream Girl, where he played a female impersonator in Mathura. The actor’s upcoming films are Gulabo Sitabo and Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan.
