Akshay Kumar was recently awarded a National Award for his performance in Rustom. The actor is now gearing up for the release of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha which is slated to hit the big screen during the Independence Day 2017 weekend. The film is based on Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan. The movie is directed by Sree Narayan Singh and produced by Neeraj Pandey.
Recently, Remo D’Souza found a pen-drive containing full film at a gym and he brought the same to Akshay Kumar’s. The crime branch of India was informed about the same and they took care of the entire issue thereby preventing the film from getting leaked on the digital platform.
