But, that almost was not the cast! In fact, did you know that a number of actors were approached for this project until Akshay Kumar came onboard?
“Neeraj Pandey (producer) handed me this wonderful script penned by the most prolific writers Siddharth Singh and Garima Wahal. I was elated to know that Akshay sir had come onboard. No one could’ve led this film better than him”, said director Shree Narayan Singh.
He further added, “Working with Akshay sir was like a dream come true. He went with my vision without interfering in the process. He is the most punctual and hard-working person in the industry today. We hope the movie strikes the right chord and brings about a change in people’s thinking.”
Akshay also had nothing but praise for the director saying, “He has stepped into his new found role with all religious heart. He’s open-minded, he’s not stuck in his ways, and he’s willing to try everything to get what’s right for the film. His editing skills are literally like no others, this is a fast paced lovely film thanks to him.”
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a romantic comedy which also touches upon the subject of open defecation.
