Bollywood movies have given us many on-screen jodis that we can’t get enough of and one such pair is Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. The duo has done Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Savdhaan and now they’re gearing up to feature in their third film together titled Bala. We will see Ayushmann playing a prematurely balding guy and Bhumi will play a dusky small town girl.
Dinesh Vijan, producer of one of the most successful films this year, Stree will be producing Bala and revealed some interesting details about the story and the choice of actors.
The producer gave us an insight into how the story will shape up and said,
Bala revolves around a guy who is balding prematurely and a dusky girl who is grappling with her own complexes brought on by her complexion. “Through their journey, the film impresses on the fact that most of us are usually attracted to outward beauty and don’t go beyond that to understand the real person. That’s one of the reasons so many relationships are falling apart today!
He was all praises for Ayushmann and the body of work he’s done. Vijan believes that Ayushmann has an amazing comic timing which he was looking for Bala. The producer also added that he was super happy to start working with Ayushmann. This also the first time that he will be collaborating with Bhumi as well.
He gave us more insights into her character and said,
In this film too she has an author-backed role of a modern-day woman trying to feel beautiful in a country that has long celebrated fair and lovely.
The film is titled Bala because the lead character played by Ayushmann’s nickname is Bala. The film will also be helmed by the director of Stree, Amar Kaushik. The shoot for the same will start in March 2019 and the movie will hit theatres September the same year.
Now, this is going to be riveting watch for sure. We already love the mix of people that are involved in this film and can’t wait for the final output already.
