Good Newwz follows two couples with the same last names, who are looking to have babies via in-vitro fertilisation. The story deals with the confusion that ensues after Kumar and Dosanjh's sperm is accidentally exchanged. The comedy has been jointly produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Kumar’s Cape of Good Hope Films.
Good Newwz marks the onscreen reunion of Khan and Kapoor after almost a decade. The two have previously worked together in films like Ajnabee, Bewafaa, Kambakkht Ishq, and Tashan. For Dosanjh, this film is his first Dharma project.
Earlier this year, Kumar opened up on his experience of reuniting with Khan, and working with Diljit for the first time. “Working with Bebo (Kareena) is always fun, but Diljit and I get along like a house on fire, if I were to say so myself. Our Punjabi connect is amazing, and I think it will show brilliantly on screen," he said, as quoted by NDTV.
Directed by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz is produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Aruna Bhatia, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Shashank Khaitan. The film hit theatres on 27 December, 2019.
