The national award winning actor revealed how it took two hours for applying prosthetics for his role in "Bala"

Ayushmann Khurrana recalls how he resembled like his grandfather after prosthetic for his film Bala. Directed by Amar Kaushik, Bala also features Bhumi Pednekar, Yami Gautam and Saurabh Shukla among others. The film revolves around baldness among Indian men. In a recent interview, Ayushmann Khurrana also spoke about how Yami Gautam got reunited with him after Vicky Donor.

Talking about prosthetics, he said, "It was a different person altogether, and I did not recognise myself. I thought I looked like my grandfather because he had scanty hair. But I could relate with the reason why there is the complex (among people who are suffering premature balding). My father is quite gifted that way. He will turn 70 next year and he still has full hair. But my grandfather had the issue, I remember. So I empathise with them. Having said that, during the shoot, the toughest part was the prosthetic. I wanted to shave my head and go bald but we could not do it since we were showing the different stages of balding. It would take two-and-a half hours everyday to get ready."

"It is difficult to choose a topic that has taboo and is important to address, but I am glad that I am born in a country which is full of taboo subjects. Our country is on one has full of conservative people and on the other hand full of progressive people. When they meet, that is when comedy emanates. Seventy per cent of the population living in rural areas is migrating to the urban cities for jobs and a better lifestyle, and they get a culture shock. Cinema gets fodder from that kind of a situation," said Ayushmann Khurrana.

He added, "Even in our film Bala, there are certain diktats that the guy has to be tall and should have good hair, while the girl has to be fair. We have to challenge such thoughts. My aspiration is always to choose a topic for my film that is noble and different."

Talking about reuniting with Bhumi and Yami, he said,  "When we reunite with our co-stars again, there is added pressure. We make a conscious effort that the camaraderie between two actors should not be repeated, but it should be different. In 'Bala', I am glad their characters are well edged out. Bhumi's character Nikita is quite interesting because although she is a dark-skinned girl, she has no complex. She is confident. Bala is the one with a complex and insecurity (for his premature balding), so he takes inspiration from her. It has a lot of layers, of killing insecurity and coming out of all complex like a phoenix."
