Little about the film: 

The trailer of Bala was unveiled on Thursday and it promises another laugh riot. Ayushmann plays a balding man and also joins hands once again with his lead actresses of two of his well-known films, Vicky Donor and Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar. His character was named ‘Bala’ for his flowy hair, but then fate had different plans for him. Be it being mocked by people, being dumped by girlfriend or ‘scaring’ people, he faces it all. He tries all possible means to resolve it, including applying buffalo’s dung, but nothing works. After some hilarious situations over his receding hairline, he finally gets a wig. His new thick crop helps him in wooing Yami Gautam and marrying her. But that is only a temporary solution and he decides to have a hair transplant.
