Owing to the Ayodhya verdict which was out couple of hours back, Section 144 was imposed on Mumbai, major parts of UP, Bangalore, Jammu and Kashmir, and other cities. Bala, Ayushmann Khurrana's third film of the year and his biggest opener, is running at the theatres. Given the situation, it was only human to wonder if this will affect Bala's Saturday run at the box office. Turns out it didn't! Girish Johar, Trade Analyst, spoke to us and said, "Unless there is any security issue, it will witness a good box office collection today as well." Bala Box Office Collection Day 1: Ayushmann Khurrana Starrer Mints Rs 10.15 Crore, Breaks Opening Day Record of Dream Girl
So clearly no one's hindering Bala's run at the box office today as well. Another Trade Expert, Sumit Kadel has mentioned in his tweet that today's growth has been remarkable. He predicts the number will be Rs 14-15 crore today which will be tremendous for Bala after it started with a little over Rs 10 crore at the box office on Day 1.
#Bala Saturday- FANTASTIC growth of approx 40% at every center. All set for ₹ 14-15 cr+ Saturday.

Ayushmann is thus going to score a hattrick of hits this year with Bala. Article 15 and Dream Girl have claimed the box office and how. Bala will help him end the year on a high note.
