In the midst of promoting his forthcoming heartfelt film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, Akshay Kumar has been speaking about how he is drawn towards real stories and how he is using his career as a way to tell them.
Talking to the media Absolute India reports the actor explaining, “The script was roaming around in the industry for four years. I can’t comment why other stars didn’t take up the film but I liked the script and that’s the reason I took up. It is a risky subject to do a love story which has a backdrop of a subject like Toilet. I liked the fact that it was a real story how a women actually said that I am not going to stay to his husband that I am not going to stay with you unless you make a toilet. I find real stories very intriguing.”
He went on to express, “When I met the women who revolted against of not having a toilet it interested me to tell this story on the big screen. I am taking advantage of me being an actor, of me being successful. So, I am trying to use these things to create buzz and awareness about such issue.”
Also starring Bhumi Pednaker and directed by Shree Narayn Singh, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ is set to hit the big screens on 11th August.
