Good Newwz Box Office: Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani starrer Good Newwz has continued its terrific run in its second week too, thanks to the lack of any major competition. With each passing day, the movie is setting a new target for itself to achieve.
After wrapping up the first week with the collections of 127.90 crores, Good Newwz remained super strong on its second Friday i.e. day 8 as it made 7.30-8.30 crores*, as per the early trends flowing in. The current total now stands at 135.20- 136.20 crores*. With such sort of number, the movie has high chances of bringing a healthy double-digit score today, thus making most of its second weekend. Now, the movie will zoom past the 150 crore mark like a cakewalk and doors for 200 crore club are very much open.
Directed by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz released on 27th December 2019.
Meanwhile, before the release, Akshay Kumar’s Good Newwz faced an objection. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed against the film in Karnataka High Court seeking stay on its release, over the subject matter.
In the film, it has been shown that two couples, both having the surname ‘Batra’ opt for IVF assistance to have a child at a private clinic. However, the clinic accidentally interchanges the sperms, which leads to confusion.
A Mysuru-based NGO has raised objection over the film’s subject, as reported by The News Minute. Mir Sameem Raza, president of an NGO called Yes Trust has filed the PIL. The petition alleges that the film’s subjectDirected by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz released on 27th December 2019. is misguiding because it might lead the audiences to believe that In-Vitro fertilisation (IVF) centres often make such mistakes, which in turn can negatively impact their business.
