The recently released Bala has been making waves for its rather distinct storyline. The Amar Kaushik directorial sees Ayushmann Khurrana in the character of a young man suffering from premature balding. It explores his insecurities as he tries to deal with societal pressures around him. The film stars Yami Gautam, who plays a beautiful TikTok star and is shattered when she discovers her on-screen husband (Ayushmann), is getting bald. However, opening up about the same in a recent interview, Yami shared she would not mind marrying a bald man in real life. "Why not?" said Yami, urging her fans to love everyone for who they are.

"I feel bald men are really cool. They look really cool. The idea of the film is to tell people that they should love themselves first, and only then can you expect others to love you," said Yami, while interacting with the media after a special screening of Bala in Mumbai. She continued, "Amar Kaushik told me that I had to react like Pari (her character in the film) and not like Yami.”
Yami, Ayushmann and their co-star Bhumi Pednekar remain extremely satisfied with the box office collection of Bala. On the film's success, Yami said, "I am happy with the way the film is doing business in theatres because we all knew that Amar Kaushik has made a really good film. But when you get such a response that shows in the box office numbers, it feels special. In just three days, the film has done really well. We are getting a lot of calls and messages, and people are sharing videos while watching the film in theatres so, it feels very overwhelming." She concluded, "People are connecting with the film and are finding the film funny and entertaining. I played a very different role in the film for the first time. I am feeling really happy that I got the opportunity to play Pari who is a TikTok queen.”
