Bala, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar, addresses a topic of premature balding in men. Yesterday, the trailer of the film was released. Apart from praising the premise, Twitter users have also found something deeply offensive. Bhumi has been shown as a dusky girl and that's what is bothering people. Turning a fair skinned girl into a dusky beauty has left them enraged. Bala Movie Trailer Funny Memes Are the Best Medicine If You Need a Laugh, Even Ayushmann Khurrana Would Agree!

Bhumi plays Ayushmann's friend in the film. What made the folks even more angry is her poster. She is shown as someone throwing away fairness creams and calling herself 'Bald ki dost, Bold' and yet her complexion has been made many tones darker to suit the purpose. The question everyone's asking is, why couldn't makers go for a dark skinned actress.
