Although, the film is facing stiff competition from Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Chhapaak, it is expected to beat Housefull 4 and Hindi Medium on the list.
Directed by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz released on 27th December 2019.
Meanwhile, the film faced legal trouble before its release as a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed against the film in Karnataka High Court seeking a 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 alleged that the film’s subject 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.
