Salman Khan turned a year older on December 27, 2019, and celebrated his 54th birthday with the media. At the event, Salman spoke about his latest release Dabangg, its box-office numbers and Akshay Kumar's film Good Newwz which released yesterday. 

When asked about Good Newwz, Salman said, "During the media interactions, Salman was asked that as per early estimates it is being said that the opening of Good Newwz will be half of Dabangg 3. To which Salman replied, “There’s nothing to be happy about it. It should have opened much bigger than Dabangg. the news about the film is quite good, yesterday I met some of the few people at the party, who have watched the film and according to them it was a beautiful film , a really nice film so the report of the film was very good . I'm happy for Akki. It is not that our film has opened, and that film has not opened that well, every film should open, whether its Akki’s, Shah Rukh's, every film should do well for the film industry, in this there's nothing to get happy about, and about the opening, it's not a bad opening at all, its a damn good opening, you know whatever the situation we are facing in the country right now, and people are still going and watching our movies, it is a salute to all our fans.”
