Meanwhile, Bhumi Pednekar is “thrilled” on seeing Bala receive so much love from the audience and crossing the Rs 100-crore mark at box office.
“It is an important film that says very, very important things for everyone to hear and think about. I’m glad that the people are giving it so much love. Having another Rs 100 crore hit under my belt is obviously an amazing feeling but what’s even more sweeter is that socially relevant films like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and now Bala have reached so many people with its message.
