Ayushmann Khurrana accused of stealing a story for Bala, legal case filed in Bombay HC – read details

Ayushmann Khurrana’s career graph is on an all time high with his back to back hits like Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho. However his next film has landed the actor in a legal trouble. According to a report on Navbharat Times, Ayushmann Khurrana, producer Dinesh Vijan and director Amar Kaushik have been accused of stealing a story to make their next Bala. A case has been reportedly filed in the Bombay High Court by Kamal Kant Chandra who has alleged that the story of Bala is lifted from his creative project Wig.

Kamal Kant, who has been an assistant to Sudhir Mishra on Daas Dev, stated that he had shared the story of a balding man with Ayushmann through WhatsApp. Ayushmann had apparently like the idea and called Kamal Kant for a meeting, which never materialised. The report further states that Ayushmann stopped responding to Kamal Kant’s messages and now announced a film on the same subject, titled Bala.

Director Amar Kaushik is currently stationed in Lucknow, as he recces locations for Bala. He was quoted in the report, stating, “I have no idea about this, we have been scripting the story since the past four-five months. There is a possibility that the characters could be same. I don’t know his script, nor have I met him. I have been writing this story since day one and it could be a tale about any balding man. And as far as the legal case is concerned, the producers will take care of it.”

Ayushmann Khurrana is known for his hatke choice of films, and his upcoming projects paint an exciting picture. The actor will reunite with Bhumi Pednekar for Bala, while he will play a cross-dressing role Dreamgirl and for Article 15, he will step into a cop avatar.
