The trailer of Ayushmann Khurrana’s much-anticipated film Bala has been released.
The National-Award winning actor shared the trailer on his official Instagram handle and wrote, “Bala Trailer (No) Baal ki kahani Bala ki zubani!#Bala Trailer Out NOW! .”
Ayushmann plays a man suffering from premature balding, who is also a prejudiced man against dark-skinned women. The trailer opens to him selling a skin-whitening cream to women in a scene that also introduces the character of Bhumi Pednekar in the film.
Suffering from a lack of confidence and identity crisis, Ayushmann’s friends and family try every herbal and home remedy to grow his hair, but all to no avail.
Yami Gautam makes an entrance through dance numbers on TikTok, and Ayushmann makes every attempt to impress her. While his father gifts him a wig to help him gain some confidence, Bhumi Pednekar and Seema Pahwa ( as daughter-mother) puncture Ayushmann’s attempt to woo Yami or achieve anything substantial in life.
It is a treat to watch Saurabh Shukla play father to Ayushmann. His understated expressions and timing add a different flavour to the comedy that Bala intends to be.
Ayushmann and Bhumi Pednekar are reuniting after Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. Seema Pahwa is also a frequent creative collaborator with both the of them.
On the other hand, Yami Gautam is reuniting with Ayushmann after their debut in Vicky Donor in 2012.
Directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner of Maddock Films, Bala is slated to release on 7 November 2019.
