Good Newwz, featuring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani, is doing impressive business at the box-office. The film minted Rs 25.65 crore on Sunday, taking the total to Rs 64.99 crore. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the film’s numbers.

He wrote, ''#GoodNewwz sets BO on Day 3… Biz jumps across most circuits… Some circuits – average on Day 1 and 2 – score big on Day 3… North sectors terrific… Multiplexes driving its biz… Revised: Sun 25.65 cr. Total: Rs 64.99 cr… Mon numbers should be strong at multiplexes… #NewYear celebrations will boost biz on Tue [31 Dec 2019] and Wed [1 Jan 2020]… Should cross ₹ 100 cr before Week 1 concludes.''

The film collected Rs 17.56 crore on its opening day and Rs 21.78 crore on Saturday alone. Good Newwz has become the second-highest of Akshay in 2019, after Mission Mangal.
Talking about the film, Akshay Kumar told PTI, "I knew it will do good. It has the seed in the right place. A lot of people have done IVF but I would be glad if more people come out and talk about it.'' Talking about the criticism the film got for its stance on anti-abortion, Akshay said, "It is just a character talking and not an actor. If you see, my character is negative in a way, I am a self-centred person in the film but that doesn’t mean I am teaching that (to people)."

The story of the film revolves around two married couples and their journey of love. Akshay and Kareena are seen as Mr. and Mrs. Batra, trying to conceive a baby. On the other hand, Diljit and Kiara too, who share the same surname, also plan to have a baby through IVF. And the real twist comes when Kareena’s eggs are fertilized with Diljit’s sperm and Kiara’s eggs are fertilized with Akshay’s sperm.

Directed by newcomer Raj Mehta and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, Good Newwz also features Adil Hussain and Tisca Chopra in supporting roles. The film was earlier named Good Newwz but was underwent a spelling change. Producer Karan Johar had announced the name change on Akshay’s 52nd birthday in September.
