Akshay Kumar is shooting for a film which has made headlines for its quirky title. Once there was Gadar – Ek Prem Katha, and here is Akshay’s film titled – Toilet Ek Prem Katha. Interesting! Bhumi Pednekar plays the female lead in the film and the release date of the film has been announced. Toilet Ek Prem Katha will release on June 2, next year. That makes two films from Akshay in the year 2017 we know of. The other one is Neeraj Panday’s Crack. Wow! Won’t be a surprise if there is another film in the pipeline.
Akshay and Bhumi started shooting for the film a week back, and Akki announced it on Twitter. He posted a picture with Bhumi, with a commode in the background. “A very good morning from @psbhumi and me from the sets of Toilet – Ek Prem Katha! First day it is…need your best wishes.”Akshay captioned the picture. Toilet Ek Prem Katha, will have Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan as a major part of its story. The film is also is reported to be quite similar to a Gujarati film Narayandas Pay And Use.
Also, not just 2017 but Akshay has already announced his 2018 as well. On Independance 2018, the actor will have a film titled Gold. Gold will be directed by Reema Kagti, popular for Aamir Khan starrer Kahaani. Khiladi Kumar certainly has his hands full.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha has been directed by Narayan Singh, and is being produced by Shital Bhatia. Akshay and Shital have earlier delivered the hit film Special 26, and we would have to wait for the fate of Toilet Ek Prem Katha. With the quirky title and the fresh pairing, the future of this satirical comedy certainly looks bright.
On the most recent episode of Koffee with Karan, Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna revealed that she was the one who made Akshay start picking good films. She told her husband that if he wants to have a second child, he needs to start doing sensible cinema.
