Akshay Kumar to deliver a ‘Good News’ on Salman Khan’s 54th birthday
Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan are great buddies. There’s no doubt about that. The two superstars have always been appreciative of each other’s work and have always maintained great rapport. While on one side it’s being said that the two will clash at the box-office on Eid 2020 with ‘Sooryavanshi’ and ‘Inshallah’, on the other side, Akki has decided to give all his fans a ‘Good News’ on Sallu’s birthday.
Yes, you read that right. ‘Good News’ will now release on Salman Khan’s birthday, December 27. The film’s fate has been getting pushed quite a lot. It was first going to hit theatres on July 19 and then was shifted to September 6. Finally, it’s said to release on Salman’s 54th birthday.
The slot of the Christmas-New Year release was booked by ‘Brahmastra’. However, Ayan Mukerji announced that the VFX of the movie will take time and therefore the film will hit theatres only in Summer of 2020. By doing so, the film avoided a clash with Salman’s ‘Dabangg 3’ which was announced yesterday to release on December 20. Now, to fill the void on the Friday of December 27, we have ‘Good News’.
#GoodNews for a good start to the new year! See you on 27th December!@karanjohar @apoorvamehta18 #KareenaKapoorKhan @diljitdosanjh @Advani_Kiara @raj_a_mehta @DharmaMovies #CapeOfGoodFilms @ZeeStudios_ pic.twitter.com/hxwxWzEnex

Akshay and Salman won’t technically clash at the ticket windows, but there surely will be competition between the two films to get the maximum number of people to the theatres considering it’s the Holiday season. While both the films are backed by superstars, it will be difficult to say which one will bite into which one’s collections.
Remember December 2018 when Shah Rukh Khan released ‘Zero’ on December 21 and Ranveer Singh came up with ‘Simmba’ on December 28? While ‘Zero’ was panned by everyone but had there been no ‘Simmba’, it would have still lived on for another week. Will the same happen with ‘Dabangg 3’ and ‘Good News’? Well, only time will be able to say that.
