Akshay Kumar who has a bandwagon of projects in the likes of Sooryavanshi, Laxmmi Bomb, Bachchan Pandey, Bell Bottom, and others seems to have chosen a small film alongside Kareena Kapoor titled Good Newwz over a big-budgeted Dharma film. Ace-filmmaker Karan Johar in a recent interview with a leading news agency claimed that he is one of the rare B-town stars who choose the content over the scale of the project or the director.
He also revealed that he was planning on a large scale feature with the actor but he decided to act in the upcoming comedy. “I have loved Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s films and I always wanted to make such movies but Dharma (his production house) has never made a film like that. I went with a big film to Akshay because he is a mega movie star. Akshay’s uniqueness is that he searches for content. He never looks for scale or opulence or who is the director. He is one superstar who has always supported first-time directors and that’s rare for a movie star,” When the actor was questioned about the same, Kumar claimed that when he was offered the feature film, he asked Johar what other projects he was working on, to which, he claimed that he was doing a small film called Good Newwz, and after liking the script the actor decided to go ahead with it.
Meanwhile, the trailer for Good Newwz was released just a day back, and fans have been excited about the movie. The movies feature Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. The movie focuses on a hilarious swap, that happens when the two couples attempt at surrogacy. Bollywood has lately been making films on several socially relevant topics, and it has been well accepted by the audiences.
