had smelled this a few days back and also brought to you that there is a big possibility that Dinesh Vijan’s Bala starring Ayushmann Khurrana may clash with Kumar Mangat’s Ujda Chaman, starring Sunny Singh. We were hoping that it doesn’t happen but looks like Maddock films has had it their way.

An hour back, Ayushmann Khurrana posted a latest poster of his film, Bala with the release date which read- Nov 7. Yes, it’s not only a clash but a day before Kumar Mangat’s Ujda Chaman, which was always coming on Nov 8.

Bala was earlier being planned for a November 15 release and prior to that, it was November 22 but on knowing Mangat is getting his film on Nov 8, which is based on the same subject, Vijan was moving heaven and hell to either collide or come a day before Ujda Chaman. And he did it.


We contacted Kumar Mangat to know if he is planning another strategy to combat the clash. But the filmmaker, who sounded extremely disappointed, told us, “It is extremely unethical and wrong on Maddock films part to clash with our film. We always were coming on Nov 8. But what can we do now. Let them come. I am sure my film is good.”

Another twist to the story is that Bhushan Kumar too tweeted sometime back to inform that he is moving Sidharth Malhotra-Tara Sutaria-Riteish Deshmukh starrer Marjaavan to Nov 15 to make way for both the films based on premature balding. Smart move we say!

Now, with Bala and Ujda Chaman hitting theatres the same weekend, we wonder which film would the audience choose, or may watch both unless they want an overdose of premature balding.
