Filmmaker Raj Mehta’s debut film Good Newwz has emerged as a clean hit at the Box Office in its first week. The film collected Rs 10.80 crore on Thursday and finished its first week at Rs 127.90 crore. Starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead, the film has been trending well since its opening day at the Box Office and good word-of-mouth on social media has benefitted it a lot. Good Newwz is expected to cross the benchmark of Rs 150 crore at the Box Office by the end of its second weekend considering there’s no other big release until January 9 when three anticipated movies hit the screens – Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Chhapaak and Rajinikanth’s Darbar.
The film, which also features Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in the lead, showed a fabulous performance during New Year holidays with its Sunday collection being the highest at Rs 25.65 crore. Check out the entire first-week Box Office breakup of Good Newwz here:
