    |

    Ayushmann Khurrana's upcoming film 'Bala' revolves around the subject of premature balding. The film's release date was recently shifted from November 15 to November 7. Incidentally, Sunny Singh's 'Ujda Chaman' which deals with a similar concept, will release the next day i.e November 8.

    The last-minute release date change of 'Bala' has not gone down well with the director of 'Ujda Chaman', Abhishek Pathak. While speaking with Mid-Day, he lashed out at Bala makers and threatened legal action against them.

    "Are they scared of my film when they have a big star like Ayushmann Khurrana? While I think they have an upper hand, it appears that they feel they are on shaky ground and hence, are resorting to such things."

    Abhishek further revealed that Maddock Films was sent a notice after the premise of Bala became known to him. He told the tabloid, "They assured us that their film is different, and I took their word for it. But we can all see that there is a blatant resemblance in the lead characters. We may take legal recourse."

    They issued an official statement that read, "Bala has been in the works for several months. If there are multiple films which deal with one of the themes, it's all the more variety for the viewers to choose from, which can never be a bad thing. It's unfortunate if a fellow filmmaker sees this as anything but a positive for audiences. Maddock stands firmly by the originality of its film, and will back its project all the way, including through legal recourse if need be." (sic)
