As Ayushmann Khurrana is awaiting the release of his upcoming film, Bala, director Amar Kaushik shared something personal about the versatile actor.
Amar, who also helmed the critically acclaimed Badhaai Ho, told Mumbai Mirror that Ayushmann was ready to go bald for the film, but he did not let him do so.
“Ayushmann has very good hair genetically; they are thick and voluminous. A person who starts losing hair has a certain pattern to it. The hair first starts thinning and then slowly starts decreasing. So even if Ayushmann would have shaved have shaved his head, we wouldn’t have got the exact desired look as we had to show the process of gradual balding.Hence, we had to go ahead with prosthetics. But I really do respect his dedication for his craft,” he said.
Going by the trailer and the songs of Bala, it is certain that Ayushmann has nailed his character once again.
Bala deals with the subject of premature balding in men and the social stigma around it. Ayushman will be seen playing a 30 something man battling balding which becomes a major life hindrance for him.
Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam are also part of the film that has been produced by Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan under the Maddock Films banner.
Ayushmann has had a great 2019 with films like Dream Girl and a National Award for Best Actor for Andhadhun.
His second collaboration with Shoojit Sircar after Vicky Donor comes with Gulabo Sitabo, the first look of which was unveiled on social media on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, his upcoming film Bala is slated to release on 8 November 2019.
