Good Newwz revolves around two married couples and their journey. Akshay-Kareena, and Diljit-Kiara are shown as couples trying to conceive a baby through In-vitro Fertilisation (IVF). However, due to a big goof-up at the fertility clinic, Akshay and Diljit’s sperms are interchanged. While Akshay-Kareena are shown as a more sophisticated and poised couple, Diljit and Kiara are the typical Punjabi ones - outspoken, friendly and fun.

Talking about the film and shooting together, Akshay recently revealed how Kareena spat on him numerous times during a scene, so much so that “he had to re-do his makeup again”. “When Kareena was doing a scene where she had to push out the baby, she was screaming out loud and simultaneously spitting on me,” he recalled on an episode of The Kapil Sharma Show. Akshay was accompanied by his co-stars Kareena, Diljit and Kiara on the comedy chat show, which recently completed its 100 episodes.

Helmed by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz will hit the theatres on December 27 this year.
