Bala (2020) is a satirical black comedy-drama that takes a dig at the unfair treatment against bald and dark-skinned people in Indian society. The film is an official remake of the Kannada movie Ondu Motteya Kathe and was showcased in the Indo-German Filmweek 2020 in Berlin. The film revolves around a fairness cream salesman in his late twenties named Bala (Ayushmann Khurrana) suffering from premature baldness. Tired of being a laughing stock, he resorts to wearing a wig and starts feeling confident again. Soon he falls for Pari Mishra (Yami Gautam), a fair-skinned model and has a perfect love tale ending up in marriage. While Bala is confident that Pari knows about his baldness through a text he had sent her before the wedding, he doesn’t realize that it was delivered to the wrong person. The misunderstanding is cleared only when Latika (Bhumi Pednekar), his dark-skinned lawyer friend storms into his house to confront him about a fake social media account that Bala had made pretending to be her. The exchange of bitter verses leads to Pari discovering the truth about his baldness. Appalled at this betrayal, she decides to leave Bala and get the marriage annulled. Desperate to save his marriage, Bala seeks help from Latika. The rest of the story unfolds with the court proceedings, the fate of his relationship, and a journey of self-acceptance.

Due to this baldness, not just personally, but he goes through a lot even in his professional career. His childhood sweetheart leaves him and he gets demoted at his job as the salesman for a women’s fairness cream.
