Well not all know that Akshay Kumar was not the first choice of screenwriters Siddharth and Garima for their upcoming movie, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. They had narrated the script to a lot of other stars before Akshay came on board.
Yes! You heard it right.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, directed by Shree Narayan Singh, is about a couple from a village in Uttar Pradesh whose marriage hits rock bottom after the wife, played by Bhumi Pednekar, refuses to defecate in open and demands a toilet to be built in their house.
Speaking about how Toilet: Ek Prem Katha happened to him, The National Award winning actor said:
“The writers brought the subject to me. I find it surprising that this script had been doing the rounds of the industry for over four years. It went to a lot of heroes, a lot of people but nobody picked it up. I liked it and I begged Neeraj Pandey to give it to me. Earlier, the film was named Sandaas Ek Prem Katha but later the title got changed.”
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha arrives in theatres on August 11th, 2017.
