According to the director Abhishek Pathak “Since I had announced my film first, it is better to release a week before them and enjoy a solo release.”
In an interview with a leading daily, when he was questioned if Bala is a bigger film with Ayushmann as the protagonist. He said,
“No one can predict how many people will watch a film but today they are open to fresh content and mine is a good film.”
He was also asked if he will now withdraw the case given that the two films will not be clashing.
“There are two different issues here— one is the release date, the other is a copyright violation. I will leave the latter to the court to decide.”
