Actor Ayushmann Khurrana is feeling the excitement in the air as he has started shooting for Bala. "Excitement is in the hair...err air. The shooting for 'Bala' begins today," Ayushmann tweeted on Monday. The film is about a man who is balding prematurely and how he deals with it. Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Bala also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam. While Bhumi plays a dusky small town educated woman, Yami essays the role of a supermodel based in Lucknow. The film is being directed by Amar Kaushik.
"This time, last year we were shooting 'Stree', and it's surreal that we are starting another film with Amar today. 'Bala' is entertaining, witty and lovable, and we have a great cast to tell this story," Vijan said in a statement. According to a source, Ayushmann Khurrana's nickname in the film is Bala and thus the title. The film also features Saurabh Shukla, Jaaved Jaaferi and Seema Pahwa in pivotal roles. It will be shot in Kanpur as well.
Apart from Bala, Ayushmann Khurrana will also be seen in Anubhav Sinha's Article 15. With this he joins the list of actors who have rocked the cop avatar on the silver screen. For the first time ever, Ayushmann will be seen playing the role of a police officer. The film went on floors in Lucknow on March 1 and the first look of Ayushmann as a cop from the film is out too.
