Bala's collections have been impressive despite a low count of screens. The film has done better business than Marjaavaan (which released a week later) and is not much behind the new release of the week Pagalpanti, at least in multiplexes.
"Bala has kept its super hit-run intact over the week gone by. The collections stayed on to be good despite a very low count of screens. They were, in fact, better than Marjaavaan, which released a week later, and not much behind Pagalpanti (at least at multiplexes), which was the new release of the week," according to Bollywood Hungama.
The film crossed the Rs 100 crore mark on its 15th day becoming Ayushmann Khurrana's 3rd film to achieve this milestone.
Ayushmann's previous films 'Badhaai Ho', released in 2018 and this year's 'Dream Girl' are two of his other films to have scored a century at the box office.
Besides, Bala has become the 35-year-old actor's second consecutive film to breach Rs 100 crore mark after his September release 'Dream Girl'.
Dream Girl is Ayushmann's career highest grosser (Rs 142.26 crore). Bala opened to rave reviews and fantastic box office numbers. The film earned Rs 10.15 crore on its opening day on November 8. It further minted over Rs 50 crore on its fifth day.
Written by Niren Bhatt, Bala tells the story of a young man (played by Ayushmann Khurrana) who is struggling with his receding hairline. Yami Gautam plays the role of a small-town TikTok star. The film also features Bhumi Pednekar, Seema Pahwa, Manoj Pahwa, Saurabh Shukla and Abhishek Banerjee in significant roles.
Bala marks the third collaboration between Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar after Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017). It also marks the second collaboration between Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam after Vicky Donor (2012).
