Yami Gautam is set to reteam with her “Vicky Donor” co-star Ayushmann Khurrana for “Bala”.
To be directed by “Stree” helmer Amar Kaushik, “Bala” is set in a small town and revolves around a prematurely balding man and a woman facing prejudice because of her skin colour.
The film, which goes on floors Monday, also features Bhumi Pednekar.
According to a press release, Yami will tap into a quirky character that is billed as “Lucknow ki supermodel”.
“Excitement is in the hair… Err air! The shooting for #Bala begins today!” she wrote on Twitter.
Produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films, the film also features Saurabh Shukla, Jaaved Jaaferi and Seema Pahwa.
