Kiara Advani Ventures Into Comedy Zone With "Good Newwz"

Mohnish Singh |Dec 21, 2019

Kiara Advani, whose last film “Kabir Singh” inflamed the box-office, is currently awaiting the release of Dharma Productions’ “Good Newwz” alongside Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh.

Kiara Advani is ending 2019 on a high note. Her first release of the year – Kabir Singh – set the box-office on fire and went on to emerge as one of the most profitable movies of Hindi cinema. After basking in the huge success of the Sandeep Vanga Reddy directorial, Kiara Advani is now awaiting the release of her next high-profile film Good Newwz.


With Dharma Productions’ Good Newwz, Kiara Advani is stepping in the comedy zone for the very first time in her career. Besides her, the upcoming movie also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Akshay Kumar and Diljit Dosanjh, actors who have previously starred in a couple of comic-capers.

Talking about switching from an intense character to a comical one, Kiara Advani says that it was challenging for her because it was a comedy and also because she started shooting for Good Newwz right after doing an intense role in Kabir Singh. From playing a quiet, subdued Preeti to stepping into the shoes of loud Punjabi woman Monica, she literally had to switch gears to play the part.

Kiara Advani, who has mostly played serious roles in her career so far, says that it is not easy to detach from a character and get into the next one. She says that she was trying to detach from Preeti and immerse into Monica. Detaching from a character can be taxing and can also take a toll on one but for her, it was fulfilling to play something that is challenging.

This is the first time when she is playing a loud Punjabi character like Monica in a film. The actress says that she has never played a loud Punjabi character before, so everything was new to her. She says she would sit and watch Punjabi videos. She also watched a couple of her co-star Diljit Dosanjh’s Punjabi films to understand the language.

Produced by Karan Johar and directed by debutant Raj Mehta, Good Newwz is slated to hit the silver screen on 27th December, 2019.
