Bala features Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Yami Gautam in the lead roles. In an interview to news agency IANS, Ayushmann talked about Bala entering the Rs 100 crore club and said: "More than my personal milestones of 100 crore hits, I am happy that I could contribute towards the growth of my industry as well as present some really good films to audiences in the process."
Bhumi, on the other hand, in a separate interview to IANS said that it is "amazing" for her to have another Rs 100 crore hit under her belt: "I'm glad that the people are giving it so much love. Having another Rs 100 crore hit under my belt is obviously an amazing feeling."
Bala is Ayushmann Khurrana's fourth film to hit Rs 100 crore mark. The other three are AndhaDhun, Badhaai Ho and Dream Girl.
Directed by Amar Kaushik, Bala is a satirical take on premature balding.
