While the report mentions that the growth is lesser than his last release Dream Girl (which collected Rs 26.47 crore over the first two days and Rs 43 crore in the first weekend), Bala might just follow in its footsteps. Now that Bala has beat the actor's previous first-day collection, the film is expected to break the previous weekend collection record too.
Ayushmann Khurrana is actually able to do what none of the biggest stars in Bollywood can do right now, which is nearly guarantee box-office success.
He shared a amusing picture of a bald man riding a bicycle as he crosses the Bala poster, captured just in time when the man's bald head replaces that of Ayushmann's on the poster.
Ayushmann thanked the audience for the love it has been showering on the film.
Bala, which opened in theatres on Friday, has raked in as much as Rs 10.15 on Day 1 and Mr Adarsh said in his tweet, the numbers are a result of positive responses from early goers and Ayushmann's huge fan-following.
Ayushmann Khurrana says his latest release Bala, which has also become his highest opener with Rs 10.15 crore, aims at "sparking a thought shift" in an entertaining manner.
The film is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan.
Ayushmann Khurrana plays a balding man of 25-years in Bala, which deals with societal taboos around physical characteristics which makes one person different from another.
