Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar-starrer Bala has got a new release date. The film, which was originally slated to hit the screens on November 22, will now be released on November 15.
Filmmaker Karan Johar took to Twitter to announce the news.
The Further GOOD NEWWZ ( pardon the plug) is that my friends funny, poignant and mazedar film #Bala has a new date which I am proud to announce to all of you!

The first teaser of Bala was released last month. The satire comedy-drama film, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar, will have her portray the role of a dusky small-town girl at odds with a society that is obsessed with fair skin. Bala also features Yami Gautam, whose role is yet to be revealed.
Ayushmann and Bhumi have earlier worked on blockbusters like Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. The upcoming film marks their third collaboration together.
Meanwhile, Ayushmann and Yami are collaborating for the second time after the 2012 hit Vicky Donor, which marked the Bollywood debut of both actors.
Bala is produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner of Maddock Films.
