Good Newwz becomes Akshay Kumar's third consecutive film to cross Rs 200 cr mark at domestic box office
Good Newwz has crossed the lifetime business of Akshay Kumar's 2019 space drama Mission Mangal.
Despite the release of films like Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Chhapaak, and Darbar, Akshay Kumar's comedy Good Newwz has been steadily generating revenue at the domestic box office. It has now become the actor's third consecutive film to mint over Rs 200 crore.
Producer Karan Johar made the announcement via Twitter on Monday. According to his tweet, Good Newwz, also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani, and Diljit Dosanjh, has now made Rs 201.14 crore in 24 days.
Trade analysts report the film has surpassed the lifetime business of Kumar's 2019 space drama Mission Mangal. They further write it has been received well in Delhi-NCR, Punjab, and Mumbai.
