Karan Johar's Dharma Productions released the trailer of Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Good Newwz today. At the trailer launch, Karan Johar opened up about the pay disparity and gender inequality in the industry. He said that they have maintained the ethos of making sure everyone gets paid solidly for their craft, art, ability and worth. Kran Johar said, "We are for a blend of commerce and art and it is something that I strongly endorse. When it comes to female-led films we have made sure that there has never been a disparity. 

The filmmaker further said that there is a profit share given and in the near future, we will see producer credit given to women-led films, if they lead the film then they must get a humongous part of the pie. And we will hear announcements about women-led films with strong producer credits. There is and will not be a disparity with their company and we will see that happening in the film fraternity as well. On this Good Newwz actor Akshay Kumar, who was also present at the event said,  “I am doing films with a lot of banners and they finalise everything. I am very happy that what Karan said right now and he is right, that’s the way it should be.”

Directed by debutant Raj Mehta and produced by Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Yash Johar, Shashank Khaitan and Aruna Bhatia under their respective banners Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films, Good Newwz is all set to hit theaters on 27th December 2019.
