Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh are set to be on screen once again for their new comedy-drama film 'Good Newwz', which is set to release on 27th December 2019. After working together in Bollywood's critically acclaimed film 'Udta Punjab', Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh will be seen in the upcoming Dharma Productions movie together. The movie is said to star Akshay Kumar in the lead role. The cast of 'Good Newwz' also includes, Kiara Advani, Tisca Chopra and Gulshan Grover.
Akshay Kumar released the first look on his official Instagram handle to announce the film. Kumar on his handle wrote, "#GoodNews for a good start to the new year! See you on 27th December." The film was initially planned to be released on 19th July 2019, but after Kumar's announcement on social media, it is clear that the film has been postponed to a near New Years Eve release. On Kumar's birthday, which is today, Karan Johar took to Twitter and announced that the name of the film changed from "Good News" to "Good Newwz". It is still unclear as to what led to the change in the film name.

'Good Newwz ', which started shooting in January 2019, is produced by Sumeet Chawla. The music of the Kareena Kapoor-starrer is composed by Tanishk Bagchi. The film has been written by Jyoti Kapoor and Raj Mehta, who has also been the Assistant Director to the film 'Kapoor and Sons'. Incidentally, Kapoor and Sons was also produced under Karan Johar's banner, Dharma Productions.
Meanwhile, fans are also eagerly waiting to see Akshay Kumar alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan. The combo had set the big screen on-fire 10 years ago, but have not been seen in a movie since. The audience will recollect the Akshay-Kareena chemistry in 'Kambakkht Ishq' in 2009 and note that it is a full decade later that the two actors have reunited on-screen to work together. The movie also marks Akshay Kumar's first appearance in a film with Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh.
