(Released: Nov 7, 2019)
"Hum aapki khubsoorti ka raaz hai, aapke sarr ka permanent taj hai." Attention, this is your hair talking and that is how Bala begins. A quirky voice-over (Vijay Raaz) sets the stage for a fun ride at the expense of the film's hero. Balmukund Shukla aka Bala (Ayushmann Khurrana) is all of 25, but looks way older, thanks to his diabetes and bald pate that has replaced what was once a dreamy crop of silky hair.
His childhood sweetheart has also left him and he is demoted at his job as the salesman for a women's fairness cream. But, Bala is not a sobering mess. Instead, he takes the challenge head on (no pun intended). Bala doubles up as a stand-up comedian where he imitates Bollywood stars and is actively seeking various remedies for his hair loss. Finally, he finds a fix, but will that bring him permanent happiness?
