Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar have teamed up for the first time for the much-awaited release of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The film has hit the screens today, August 11, and the fans of the star are flocking to theatres to catch the early shows. The Shree Narayan Singh directorial intends to spread awareness about hygienic sanitary practices. The idea of the film is rooted in the sorry state of India, where many still defecate in the open. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha hopes to talk about the sensitive issue in an entertaining manner.
In the film, Akshay plays the role of Keshav, a man who wants to get married. When his dreams are finally realised, his wife- Jaya (played by Bhumi Pednekar) leaves him because there was no toilet in the house. On seeing his beloved take such a strong stand for herself, Keshav takes it upon himself to build a toilet. In the process, he fights the conservative mentality of people in his village.
How Keshav gains courage and fights his own people for something which is right, forms the crux of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The presence of a star like Akshay has increased hopes for everyone. Since Bollywood desperately needs a hit right now, almost everyone is hoping this film would end the dry spell.
