Toilet Ek Prem Katha trailer: If movie trailers could predict the success of a movie than perhaps Director Shree Narayan Singh can sleep peacefully as the trailer of his upcoming film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ has garnered over six million views within a day of the release of the trailer. The trailer was released during the India versus South Africa match during the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy being held in England. The movie is inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet project ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign. The trailer apart from being a laugh-riot also drills in the importance of cleanliness and sanitation.
In the film, Keshav (played by Akshay Kumar) is unable to get married but is desperate to get wed at the earliest. He soon meets Jaya (played by Bhumi Pednekar), the woman of his dreams and the duo ties the knot. The day after the marriage Jaya gets the shock of her life as she is woken up early in the morning by the ‘lota gang’ – a group of women who carry a lota (pot) to an open field for their morning business as Akshay Kumar does not have a toilet at home. A furious Jaya leaves Keshav’s house.
Taking a leaf from history, Keshav decides to build his ‘Taj Mahal,’ a toilet for his wife. The trailer also shows Keshav trying to convince people in his village to open their minds to the idea of toilets and running around government offices.
