The Bala teaser, featuring Ayushmann Khurrana, created quite an uproar the moment it was dropped. Bala is a film about a man in his thirties who suffers from premature balding. The film has been directed by Amar Kaushik, who also directed Rajkummar Rao-starrer Stree. Bala is expected to be another hit from the Article 15 actor. The Bala teaser is definitely innovative, but read more to know about the five things you might have missed about this bald character.
The Bala teaser opens with Ayushmann sitting on a bike and singing Shah Rukh Khan’s famous song Koi Na Koi Chahiye from the film Deewana. Ayushmann’s character in Bala can be seen imitating the Deewana actor in the teaser.
Ayushmann did not shave his head for Bala. The bald look has been achieved with the help of prosthetics. Ayushmann, in an interview with a media publication, has said that there was no option of shaving his head since the timeline of the story was shot in an irregular pattern. So, different stages of premature balding have been achieved with the help of heavy prosthetics.
Post the opening scene where Ayushmann can be seen singing Shah Rukh Khan’s song, his character’s cap flies off due to a gust of wind. A few seconds later, Ayushmann starts singing actor Rajesh Khanna’s song Rehne Do.
Ayushmann Khuranna’s Dum Laga Ke Haisha co-star Bhumi Pednekar and Vicky Donor co-star Yami Gautam are missing from the teaser. According to sources, Bhumi will play Ayushmann’s love interest and Yami will be playing the role of a model in the movie.
The Bala teaser ends with the poster of the film declaring the release date of the film as of November 22nd. But according to the latest update given by Karan Johar, the release of the film has been preponed to November 15, 2019. Check out Karan’s tweet below.
