Good Newwz, is however, Akshay’s fifth consecutive film (including 2018 film Gold) to achieve the feat. The actor had an extended cameo in 2017 film in Taapsee Pannu’s Naam Shabana which wrapped up at Rs 36 crore. His 2018 film PadMan, which got the National Award for Best Film on Other Social Issues, also couldn’t cross the mark with collections of Rs 81.82 crore.

Kesari: Rs 154 crore
Gold: Rs 104.72 crore

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh had pointed out at the coincidence about how Ranveer Singh’s 2018 film, Simmba had also crossed the Rs 100 crore mark on January 1 last year. He tweeted, “Simmba - the last release of 2018 - crossed Rs 100 cr mark on 1 Jan . GoodNewwz - the last release of 2019 - will also cross Rs cr mark on 1 Jan . A wonderful coincidence, isn’t it?”
The film garnered a positive response in the overseas market as well with collections of over Rs 34.52 crore. Sharing the overseas collections of the film, Taran wrote on Twitter, “Good Newwz - Overseas - Total till Tue [31 Dec 2019]: $ 4.84 million [Rs 34.52 cr]... Key markets...USA + Canada: $ 2.30 mn, UAE + GCC: $ 798k, UK: $ 554k and Australia NZ Fiji: $ 695k.”
Good Newwz also stars Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh as another married couple trying to have a baby. The film is a goof-up drama as the two couples take the IVF route to become parents but things do not go as planned.
