The Akshay Kumar – Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Good Newwz directed by Raj Mehta released across 3100+ screens on Friday last week. After opening on a decent note with Rs. 17.56 cr coming in, the business of the film saw immense growth over its opening weekend. In fact, with positive reviews and good audience appreciation, Good Newwz managed to draw in a further Rs. 21.78 cr on Saturday and another Rs. 25.65 cr on Sunday.
Now after its opening weekend, we take a look at the collections of Good Newwz while comparing the same to previous releases of 2019. Collecting a total of Rs. 64.99 cr, Good Newwz ranks as the seventh-highest opening weekend grosser of 2019. Though the business of Good Newwz surpasses previous releases like Kalank that collected Rs. 62.75 cr, Total Dhamaal that collected Rs. 62.40 cr, and Super 30 that collected Rs. 50.76 cr, it does not outbeat other big-ticket releases of 2019. In fact, leading the list are releases like War that collected Rs. 166.25 cr, Bharat that collected Rs. 150.10 cr, Mission Mangal that collected Rs. 97.56 cr, Saaho that collected Rs. 79.08 cr, Dabangg 3 that collected Rs. 78.75 cr, and Kabir Singh that collected Rs. 70.83 cr
Currently, Good Newwz continues to run in theatres; however, the film faces competition from previous releases of December like the Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3. But despite this, the film is expected to do brisk business over the coming weekdays. In fact, trade predictions state that the film could well go past the Rs. 100 cr mark in the next few days.
