Dharma Productions’ latest offering Good Newwz (2019) has set the box-office on fire. Released on 27th December, the dramedy has been performing exceptionally well not only in India but also across the world.

“We are extremely overwhelmed with the response coming in for Good Newwz as it is a subject which had to be shared with the audience. It is an important subject and I thank the viewers not only in India but also overseas that they have accepted us with open hearts. With this film, I am confident that a movie with good messaging and subject will always fetch success and appreciation,” said the superstar.

Good Newwz, which has been directed by debutant filmmaker Raj Mehta, has closed out its first week with an impressive ₹ 127.90 crore in its pocket. Well-known trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter that with no major film this week, Good Newwz has an advantage of one more week. It should hit ₹ 150 crore in weekend 2 and target ₹ 200 crore can be achieved if it trends well on weekdays, which, in turn, will help programming in week 3, when Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Chhapaak and Darbar arrive.
