Karan Johar's upcoming production venture, Good Newwz has been grabbing headlines right from its inception. The comedy-drama, which features Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh in key roles is directed by Raj Mehta and is slated to release on December 27. There were recent reports, which suggested that actress Anjana Sukhani, who has been the part of films like Sunday, Salaam-E-Ishq, Golmaal Returns and others is essaying the role of Akshay Kumar's wife in the film. But our source has confirmed that the 40-year-old star will not play the role of Akki's wife but his sister in the film.
The ensemble cast is one of the biggest reasons behind the excitement of this film. We’d seen Bebo setting the social media on fire with her with a fake baby bump earlier this year from the sets of Good Newwz. With this film, Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan reunite after a decade. They were last seen together in Kambakkht Ishq. The movie also sees Kareena and Diljit reunite after Udta Punjab in 2016.
Talking about Akshay's character in specific, a source earlier informed Mumbai Mirror, "This character is stylish and rich, in a space, Akshay has not explored in the recent past. There is plenty of humour and drama in Kareena and his track." The report also states that Diljit and Kiara belong from a traditional Punjabi family, with the Shadaa star being a big fan of a popular Punjabi rapper. As far as Good Newwz's storyline is concerned, a source close to the development added, "It is a situational comedy revolving around these two couples from different cultural backgrounds and the procedure."
Well. looking at the plot and star cast, it seems that the makers have a box office winner in their hand? What's your thought? Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
