Akshay Kumar: Toilet Ek Prem Katha Was First Named Sandaas Ek Prem Katha

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.
