A few hours back before the trailer of the film Bala released, it was announced that the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer will now release on November 7, instead of November 15. However, what's interesting is that the film quite identical to it, Ujda Chaman is releasing on November 8. Directed by Abhishek Pathak, Ujda Chaman stars Pyaar Ka Punchnama actor Sunny Singh in the lead role. In an interview with an entertainment portal, the makers of the film expressed their disappointment given Bala changed its release date. Pitching it as 'unethical' and 'wrong', the makers stated that now nothing can be done and that they have faith in the film.
