Ayushmann Khurrana is reuniting with his Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Vicky Donor co-stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam respectively for the Amar Kaushik-directorial Bala. Kaushik has helmed the 2018 box-office hit Stree while this anticipated project will revolve around a cautious social subject of Premature Balding. Which proves once again that Ayushmann is taking another risk with films with a social subject as most of his films do. He will be playing a character who suffers from the condition and will be seen having a bald patch in the movie.
Co-star Yami Gautam spoke about working with Ayushmann after Vicky Donor, in Bala. She said, “I’m excited to be working on Bala. It’s a great script, and a relevant concept and an amazing team working on it. It’s been an overwhelming time for me this year, starting with Uri and now with coming on board for Bala. We begin shooting for the film this week and I look forward to being part of another strong film with a great story backing it.” Ayushmann Khurrana-Yami Gautam To Rekindle Their 'Vicky Donor' Chemistry in Amar Kaushik's Film Bala
