After enjoying a phenomenal opening weekend, Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor's Good Newwz remained super strong on its first Monday at the ticket windows. As per the early estimates, the family entertainer has raked in around Rs 13 crore and currently stands with the grand total of Rs 78 crore. Looking at the current scenario, we are expecting the film to enter the Rs 100 crore club by the end of its opening week at the domestic market.
While the film is receiving appreciation from all over the world, it has garnered criticism for its anti-adoption view. Talking about it Akshay said, "When the doctor tells Deepti (Kareena) in the film that she will have to stop working if she and Varun go for IVF, my character immediately asks the doctor, 'But I can continue working, right?' So, I'm such a self-centred person in this movie. But it doesn't mean that I'm teaching that men have to be like this. It's just a character. I admire those critics who do all this but I'd request them to watch a film as a film. Stop dissecting it unnecessarily." Talking about the same, Akshay says, "I always knew that the seed was right. I never knew that it would turn out to be so good. But I knew that it was something different. I've previously done a film on wife swapping and this was based on sperm swapping, so I think the swapping part works (laughs)."
When asked to him that how he mastered the art of choosing scripts over the years, he replied, "Nobody can do that because things are changing so quickly. You have to keep up the pace otherwise people will overtake you. All you have to do is just pray that you keep on surviving. I always say that I don't believe in rankings but I do believe that I should survive in this industry. It's been 30 years that I have survived and I just want to survive more and more till they shoot me down." Anyway, have you watched the film? Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
