The filmmaker desperately needs a hit and he’s banking on this film.

Karan Johar

 Karan Johar badly needs a hit this year. All his releases in 2019 — Student Of The Year 2, Kalank and Johar’s terrible Netflix debut Drive have been disasters. Would Good Newzz finally bring some good news for Dharma Productions?

Chances are, it may backfire thanks to the adult theme of pregnancy through IVF. While Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh individually, are huge stars with a massive following among children and family audiences, it is a  debatable point whether family audiences would enjoy watching their favourite stars talk about sex... pregnancy... sperms fertilising... etc etc.

They cringed when Akshay Kumar spoke  about the menstrual cycle in Padman. How do you think they’ll react when Akshay and Diljit exchange  sperm secrets while bodily functions are  discussed openly?”
