Even before the film could have made an amazing collection at the box-office, Good Newwz has already hit the roadblock. The film starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh in the pivotal roles is making noise for all the right reasons. As it has hit the theatres on today, Twitterverse can be seen going gaga over the film. While the film continues to receive immense love and response, the makers have landed in trouble and a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) has been filed against the makers in Karnataka High Court.
The PIL filed in the Karnataka HC seeks a stay by a Mysuru man, Mir Sameem Raza, who’s the leader of Mysuru based NGO called Yes Trust. The film misleads the childless couples and makes them question the credibility of the IVF Centre.

According to a Newz Minute report, The Petition read, “The movie is about two childless couples, who come for IVF treatment, and the sperms get exchanged. This is bound to create a lot of confusion and uncertainty about the credibility of IVF treatment itself. As childless couples are already under immense social and psychological pressure, this may further cause emotional disturbance for them.”
It further reads, “The lead actors of this film are endorsing that this type of mix-up does not happen at Indira IVF Centre, which creates doubts in the minds of people about the credibility of other IVF treatment centers across India. The petitioner has absolutely no reservation for somebody making an effort to increase the credibility of Indira IVF but not at the cost of the others in the field. This is the wrong type of product placement.”
While Akshay, Kareena Kiara, and Diljit are enjoying the response of their film, we shall wait for the makers to send out an official reply soon.
