"Good Newwz": Akshay Kumar Picked The Comedy-Drama Over A Big-Budget Movie

Aesha |Nov 19, 2019

Good Newwz's trailer was launched recently but it looks like we might have seen Akshay Kumar in another of Karan Johar's film.

Good Newwz has been making headlines for quite a while and its trailer has only been released recently. The film features brilliant actors such as Kareena Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani along with Diljit Dosanjh.

On another hand, a new revelation has been delivered by filmmaker Karan Johar, saying that Akshay was offered a big-budget movie beforehand but he eventually opted for the comedy.


Karan Johar shared that he has always been in love with Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s movies and he really aspired to make suchlike films. However, Karan’s production house Dharma has never created such a flick. He added that Akshay is a unique big movie star as he always looks for content in a film.

What matters to the actor is not opulence, scale or who the director is. Akshay Kumar is the superstar that has great support for first-time filmmakers and it is rare to find in a film star.


Good Newwz is the 23rd movie in which Akshay has collaborated with a burgeoning director. The Laxmmi Bomb actor also shared that he asked KJo what else the director was creating, to which he replied that he was working on a small movie named Good Newwz. Akshay asked Karan to narrate the story to him. Finished listening to the plot, Akshay told him to do the film Good Newwz and drop the remaining one.

Meanwhile, the much-awaited trailer of the impending film was out on social media and the film will surely crease the audience up. The trailer gives a great expectation for unlimited funny scenes of two confused pregnant couples played by Akshay-Kumar and Diljit-Kiara.

The couples went to the hospital for an IVF treatment as they are all trying to conceive. However, there is a big twist where the two couples share the same last name which makes the staff of the hospital mix up their sperm and eggs.
