The similarities between the two upcoming films on premature balding — titled Bala and Ujda Chaman respectively — has been the talk of the town lately. While the industry is amazed to see how two films on the same subject are releasing on the same date, Ujda Chaman director Abhishek Pathak appears secure in his product.

 “I am confident in my film, and the way the trailer has been appreciated only makes me happier. As far as star power is concerned, I know Bala has a star-like Ayushmann (Khurrana) and nobody can deny that. They know my film doesn’t have a big star, but Sunny (Singh) has done Pyaar Ka Punchanama, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, which has done 100 crore business,” he asserts, adding that team Bala seems to be in a panic. “Coming on the same day will damage the industry revenue. I don’t know what made them announce the dates thrice; it seems they are in panic mode. We came before them, so I don’t know why were they so confused about their release date,” he says.
