Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, is based on PM Modi’s clean India drive, popularly known as Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Actor Akshay Kumar is on cloud nine these days and he has all the right reasons. On May 3, President Pranab Mukherjee presented the actor with the National Award for his performance in Rustom and Airlift. And, today, the actor met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Capital to tell him about his upcoming film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha . Akshay shared a photo with NaMo on his Twitter page and it didn’t take long for it to become a hot topic on social media.

“Met PM @narendramodi and got the opportunity to tell him about my upcoming ‘Toilet-Ek Prem Katha.’ His smile at just the title made my day!,” the actor tweeted.

The film, which also stars actor Bhumi Pednekar, is a satirical comedy based on Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan— a governmental initiative to improve the sanitation conditions in India. Helmed by Shree Narayan Singh, it will highlight the importance of the pay-and-use toilet scheme and bring to light the issue of open defecation, mostly in rural areas of India. The film releases on August 11, and will clash with Imtiaz Ali’s Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer.

On March 30, Akshay Kumar had shared the first poster of his film.

On March 24, the actor had shared a video message on his Twitter page, in which he urged people to change their thought process, build more toilets and have more hygienic surroundings.
