Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani on Monday launched the trailer of their upcoming film Good Newwz in Mumbai. While talking about the film, Akshay said the Raj Mehta directorial is a “slice-of-life story.”
“Karan (Johar) narrated me a story for almost 3 hours. Then I asked him what else he was making. He told me he was making a small film called Good Newwz. I asked him to narrate that film’s story. After listening to it, I told him, ‘Let’s drop the other one and do Good Newwz.’ I really liked this slice-of-life story,” Akshay said.
Kareena Kapoor said she is perfect for Good Newwz and the role she plays in it. “When Raj narrated the script, I thought I was perfect for the role. I loved the script. It was so funny. I couldn’t stop laughing. Also, it was such a great package. So, I was like why not. I was the first one to come on board,” the actor remarked.
While Good Newwz marks Shashank Khaitaan’s debut as a producer, it marks Raj Mehta’s debut as a director.
Talking about his debut project, Raj Mehta said, “I am fortunate to have made a film for Dharma Productions. I was really nervous when I started with such a big cast. It’s a dream for any director to make his debut with such a stellar cast.”
Good Newwz will release on December 27, 2019.
