It is a moment of pride for Akshay Kumar and the team of Toilet Ek Prem Katha as Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently lauded the trailer as ‘good effort.’ The trailer, released yesterday, has garnered more than nine million views in a day.

It starts with Keshav aka Akshay Kumar repeatedly telling his father that he wants to get married. Then, we see him marrying a buffalo because he is a ‘manglik’.

As the trailer moves forward, he meets his dream girl, Bhumi Pednekar, and both are soon married. It is the morning after the marriage that Bhumi is rudely introduced to the ‘lota’ gang because Akshay’s house has no toilet. She soon leaves him due to this and Akshay, who is deeply in love with his wife, wants to bring in awareness about the risks of defecating in open and wants to build a toilet at home.

In the three-minute video, director Shree Narayan Singh manages to highlight the importance of sanitation in India. In spite of the serious social message, the fast paced promo entertains you at all levels. Divyendu Sharma, the Pyar ka Punchnama fame, plays Akshay’s friend.

The flick is slated to release on August 11.
