Akshay Kumar seems to complete shooting schedules with the same diligence as his fitness routines. The actor has wrapped up the shooting for Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, his next film with Bhumi Pednekar. The actor tweeted a picture, revealing the names of the lead characters in the film. The film is set to release in theatres on 2 June.
Incidentally, the plot of the film revolves around the Swacch Bharat campaign started by the government of India. The film will focus on the need for toilets and facilities for people in all villages and townships of India. Kumar's character Keshav is reportedly a man who runs a pay-and-use toilet facility in a town, and falls in love with Pednekar's character Jaya, who regularly uses the facility. It is being touted as a unique love story with a social message.
This year has already seen Kumar touch the heart of his fans with his conscientious role in Jolly LLB 2 (2017). The sequel has been appreciated by many fans.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is expected to be in the same vein, and has already acquired a buzz. The film is being produced by Aruna Bhatia, Plan C Studios and Abundantia Entertainment, and is presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment. The film is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and is slated for theatrical release on 2 June.
