Good Newwz Box Office (Overseas): Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has built a reputation amongst the overseas audience over the years and have been tremendously successful there. Now, with combining the star attraction of Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and brilliant performances by Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani, the film has turned out to be another success story for the banner.
Back here in India, Good Newwz is marching towards the coveted 200 crore club, while in international circuits it is soon expected to touch 75 crore mark. As of now, the film has amassed a sum of 59.99 crores gross ($ 8.34 million– 10 days collection i.e. till 2nd Sunday).
It has earned $ 3.99 million from USA -Canada and another $ 1.34 million from UAE-GCC. UK has brought in $ 959k, while Australia, New Zealand and Fiji have added a combined collection of $ 1.19 million in film’s overseas total.
As of now, Good Newwz is all set to cross the 75 crore mark but it will be interesting to see if it sails through the century mark as two biggies: Chhapaak and Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, are expected to eat up the huge chunk of its business in international circuits.
Directed by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz released on 27th December 2019.
The Raj Mehta directorial earned $6.42 million (Rs 45.58 crore) in the first week itself across international markets. It is distributed overseas by Zee Studios International.
Meanwhile, before the release, Mysuru-based NGO raised objection over the film’s subject, as reported by The News Minute. Mir Sameem Raza, president of an NGO called Yes Trust filed the PIL. The petition alleged that the film’s subject is misguiding because it might lead the audiences to believe that In-Vitro fertilization (IVF) centers often make such mistakes, which in turn can negatively impact their business
