During the IMAX trailer and poster launch of Gold in Mumbai on Wednesday, Akshay was asked whether it was his conscious decision to do content-driven films. As part of his reply, he also revealed a little something about Good News. He said, “I am doing Good News and there are many other things which I am doing which does not have anything to do with social cause…”

While Kareena returned to films with Veere Di Wedding this year, Diljit made a striking goal at the box office as hockey player Sandeep Singh in sports biopic Soorma. Kiara, on the other hand, is a revelation of 2018, after she featured in the anthology film Lust Stories. She starred opposite Vicky Kaushal in the short film directed by Karan Johar.
