Just the other day Ayushmann Khurrana said to this writer that he would only like to do films that attempt something never done before. His next release Bala was about  pre-mature balding, a theme that Ayushmann felt has never been attempted before in Hindi cinema. Little did he know! Along comes another film Ujda Chaman about premature balding, this one featuring Sunny Singh of  Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (where he played the  clueless Titu) as a 30-year-old suffering from premature balding.

Apparently, the producer Dinesh Vijan of Bala was caught completely off-guard when the trailer of Ujda Chaman was released last week. What is more, Ujda Chaman, will release on November 8 one week ahead  of  Bala thereby drastically  diminishing the novelty value of Bala.

Says a source close to the Bala team, “We were aware that there was another film on the same theme happening. A remake of some South Indian film (Ujda Chaman is a remake of the Kannada film  Ondu Motteya Kathe). But we didn’t know it would be released ahead of us.”

Ujda Chaman will mark the directorial debut of veteran producer Kumar Mangat’s son Abhishek Pathak. The producer is leaving no stone unturned  to ensure  the film makes optimum impact. And what better precaution for impact than a release date ahead of a  film on the same theme?

Will the Bala  team strike back by preponing  their film from November 15? Lets’s wait and watch. The Bala-Ujda Chaman  war  for eyeballs reminds us of the Inquilaab-Aaj Ka MLA Ram Avtar war  of supremacy  in 1984. While Inquilaab starring Bachchan was a  minor hit, Rajesh Khanna’s Aaj Ka MLA was a flop.
