Looks like Bollywood is taking 'baldness' too seriously, as not one, but two films on the same storyline is soon to hit the silverscreen. Almost having the same plot, Bollywood's latest offerings are Bala starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Ujda Chaman starring Sunny Singh. While a lot has been said about the similarities between the two, seems like the situation is about to take an ugly turn. All things was good, when Ujda Chaman was about to release on November 8 and Bala on a later date. But on October 10, the makers of Khurrana's film preponed the release date of their flick to November 7, which is just a day before Ujda Chaman.

Now, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, when Abhishek Pathak, the director of Ujda Chaman was quizzed if they are going the legal way. “We are discussing it with our legal team and will take action in a few days. This is a clear case of copyright violation. I can understand two films around a bald character releasing within a shirt span of time, but in this case, there are striking similarities with my film and the original whose rights are with me,” he answered.

Yes, we do understand that coincidences happen, but this one is a bit difficult to gulp. Even the trailers of the two have so many similarities. Well, it surely difficult to say which among the two films is better. While Ayushman's film looks more on the lighter side, Ujda Chaman looks like it has more to say about the stigma attached to premature balding among young men.
