Set to release on August 11th, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha portrays the love story between a simple man Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and the progressive Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) with only one thing standing in their way…a toilet. The film is a satirical take on a battle against the age old tradition of open defecation in the country. From the panchayat to the sanitation department, from the role of the government to the superstitions of the villagers, from scams to ethics, from first love to a matured romance, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha covers all the facets and facades stifling India’s potential to overcome the open-defecation crisis.
While the worlds ills and issues cannot be solved overnight, it’s ironic that we have the resources and technology to reach the Moon and Mars, yet still allow the issue of open defecation to continue as a nationwide predicament in India.
Check out the new song sung by star Akshay Kumar, who said in an earlier interview the intention with this song was “to make people realize the importance of having toilets in their homes. I want everyone to educate their kids, so that they can grow up and bring this big change.”
Only Akshay Kumar could pull off a role like this! Check it out!
