Parenthood is the best thing to happen to Karan Johar. For some time now he has been toying with the idea of doing a film on his experience of becoming a father. Karan Johar’s new film tentatively titled Good News will feature Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan as a couple trying to have a baby.
Many of the incidents shown in the film will be based on the thought-processes and experiences that Karan personally went through when his twins Roohi and Yash were born through surrogate-motherhood. Says a source close to Karan, “Parenthood is something Karan and Kareena, who are very close to one another, have gone through very recently. The pangs of parenthood are fresh in the minds and hearts of both. And that's the reason why Karan was keen to have Kareena on board for Good News. As for Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar was keen to have him on board for a very long time.”
Good News is a tentative title. It may change, since Karan and Akshay feel audiences would perceive it to be a film on the media and journalism.
