    New Delhi (Sputnik): Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan's “Good Newwz” was released on 27 December and received positive feedback from both critics and fans alike. The film tells the story about two couples with the same surnames who pursue in-vitro fertilisation and wait for their upcoming babies.

    According to reports, the film garnered a total of 66 crores ($9.25 million) by Sunday, 29 December, but the film’s producer Karan Johar posted that it has received a business of Rs 64.99 crores (approximately $9.1 million), a figure that is less than what the trade analysts are actually stating.

    This has angered netizens who feel that the filmmaker is trying to malign the image of lead actor Akshay, known for giving back to back hits.

    Social media users requested the Bollywood superstar not to work with Karan Johar again as he allegedly did the same with Akshay Kumar’s previous film “Kesari”, which also earned more than what Johar stated.

    TWEETS:

    Some said this was the first time in history that a producer's figure was less than actual collections because Johar wanted to pocket the higher profit.

    The film also stars Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh and was directed by Raj Mehta.
