On November 6, the makers of Bala hosted a special screening of the film for Bollywood friends. From Shraddha Kapoor to Varun Dhawan, many came to cheer for Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar's film.
Ayushmann's wife Tahira Kashyap was also present at the screening. She tweeted, "Watched #Bala for the second time, grinned even wider! Ab aage kya bolun, bas ek bahot hi achi aur imaandaar film hai, dekhni toh banti hai?? #amarkaushik @bhumipednekar @yamigautam @ayushmannk #javedjaffery #abhishekhbanerjee @MaddockFilms #anujrakeshdhawan"
The movie received praise by Varun Dhawan as well who tweeted: "#bala is a beautiful world created by @amarkaushik. The entire cast is amazing @ayushmannk sirrrrr superb @bhumipednekar is effortlessly cool and @yamigautam let's make a tik tok soon loved u go catch it. Din don't be shy now congratulations (sic)"
Director Shashank Khaitan also has praise for the movie. “Watched #Bala??????? last night. It's such a wonderful film, with a great message... @amarkaushik amazing job man... @ayushmannk once again great choice and super performance. @bhumipednekar such a courageous role... hats off ... @yamigautam u were terrific... #dinovijan congrats man (sic)"
Ayushmann Khurrana loved for exploring territories less talked about. He played a sperm donor in Vicky Donor, he talked about erectile dysfunction in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. Seems like the actor will steal hearts again with Bala which talks about premature balding.
