Good Newwz is the story of two couples who are both trying to have a baby. Matters turn tricky when, at an IVF clinic, their sperms get exchanged. The film stars Akshay, Kareena, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in lead roles. The film has been jointly produced by Karan Johar Dharma Productions and Akshay Kumar’s Cape of Good Hope Films.

Akshay has had a glorious run at the box office this year with each of his three previous films -- Kesari, Mission Mangal and Housefull 4 -- working wonders. Kesari tells the story of small group of Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army, who bravely defended a fort in what was previously the North West Frontier Province, against an Afghan attack, the latter outnumbering the Sikhs by a huge margin. Mission Mangal was a story of India’s successful Mars Orbiter Mission and was spearheaded by a large female cast. Housefull 4 was a comic caper.

Kareena has also had successful run recently - her post-pregnancy comeback project, Veere Di Wedding, worked well at the box office. She has three other big projects -- Angrezi Medium, for which she has already completed shooting; Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, for which she has been shooting since earlier this year; and Karan Johar’s ambitious Takht, the shoot of which is likely to commence early next year.
