"Is there any better news than this in the beginning of the year? It's #GoodNewwz! Thank you for showering your love on the Batras!" said Dharma Productions, the banner behind the comedy.
The comedy flick is performing better than Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 that has made around Rs 145 crore at the end of the second week. Dabangg 3 proved to be a disappointment at the box office, unlike the previous instalments of the Dabangg series.
Good Newwz has been directed by Raj Mehta. It revolves around two couples with the same surname. Both the couples opt for in-vitro fertilisation but chaos ensues when they realise that the sperms have been swapped by mistake at the clinic.
The film also stars Tisca Chopra and Adil Hussain in significant roles apart from the four lead actors.
