“It’s with the biggest goof-up ever, that this Bollywood movie will make its ‘delivery’, on screen,”enthuses Akshay Kumar,who is all set to soon unleash his latest screen-avatar in the upcoming maverick laugh-riot musical Hindi movie ‘Good Newwz’ co-produced by Karan Johar releasing during the ‘Xmas’ week.
Already the thundering Bhangra-pop song ‘Sauda Khara Khara’ from the movie, has started trending big-time already, which has Akshay grooving with wild abandon and swaying precariously to the pulsating beats even while on horse-back followed by a wriggly naagin (snake) dance on the floor.
Even as the countdown has begun in Bollywood for ‘Merry X’mas’ festivities, Indian and NRI movie-buffs are eagerly waiting to check out the new Bollywood movie releases during the ‘jingle bells and painting-the-town-Red-revelry’ week.
Otherwise known for his meaningful message-laden movies like ‘PadMan’ and ‘Mission Mangal’, the adventurous Akshay Kumar tackles this situation of a merry mix-up (read swap) of ‘sperm’ samples during the IVF (In Vitro Fertilization ) procedures in this maverick movie ‘Good Newwz’.
Considering that his fans and cine-goers tend to take him seriously when his film-subjects are socially relevant,wasn’t Akshay concerned that his latest movie could also result in streaks of skepticism amongst impressionable audiences about the frivolous ‘sperm mix-up’?
Justifiesthe ‘Khiladi’ Kumar, “Something like this can randomly and inadvertently happen only once-in-a-blue-moon. Nobody can say in real-life, that some ‘goof-up’ like this has never taken place. In fact, there are three or four instances, where this has actually happened.”
Continues the ‘Housefull 4’ hero,“In the normal course, the IVF procedure is meticulously executed. Although it’s a freak-out comedy, it has its serious elements, we have taken due care, and diligence and the movie have its sensitivity. There is an important message in this entertaining movie ‘Good Newzz’, for childless couples, and especially for distressed women/ wives since the IVF has a 92 per cent success ratio with millions of children both thru this process, “insists Akshay who is paired with his mascot heroine Kareena Kapoor, the other besides the other on-screen-couple Diljit Dosanjh with Kiara Advani playing his wife.
Interestingly, ‘Good Newwz’ is directed by debutant Raj Mehta. With a sense of pride Akshay, who loves working with ‘new’ directors reacts with, “Talented Raj is the 21st debut-director whom I have worked with. Their greed for good work is far more than a lot of senior directors. For the new directors, it’s a do or die situation, that if this doesn’t work, my career is over.”
Which in turn also works out to superstar Akki’s advantage who with his versatile roles, ‘hates being tagged only as of the ‘Khiladi’ action-hero’.
