Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is readying his new multi starer production “Good Newwz” for a Christmas release, says he feels really happy when an actor agrees to work for his banner at a lower price. He adds that Akshay Kumar, the hero of “Good Newwz”, has not given him any good news so far on that front.
“Good news to me is when an actor agrees to do my film at a low price, but that’s a good news Akshay hasn’t given me so far,” Johar said with a laugh, while interacting with the media at the trailer launch of the film along with the lead cast, comprising Akshay, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh, besides director Raj Mehta on Monday in Mumbai.
He added: “I feel if I hear some good news, then there is also a piece of bad news around the corner — unless the good news is about something like the birth of a child. I still remember when I got the information about my two babies, I felt really happy. I feel, after hearing every good news you hear some bad news, and I guess there is some kind of ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi gham’ situation that takes place in our lives. So, I don’t hold on to that news with a lot of joy ever. Rather, I am a bit of a cynic that way.”
“Good Newwz” is the third collaboration between Johar and Akshay after “Kesari” and “Brothers”. Next year, Akshay will be seen in “Sooryavanshi”, which is co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. “Good Newwz” is scheduled to release on December 27. (IANS)
