- It currently stands at over Rs 80 crore
Here's a detailed analysis of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha's collection figures:
Bollywood was looking forward to Toilet: Ek Prem Katha with eager eyes with the hope that the movie would revive the box office after never-ending cases of recently witnessed debacles. Salman Khan's Tubelight released on Eid but did not live up to the expectations, Shah Rukh Khan's Jab Harry Met Sejal was also met with a rather cold response at the theatres and Ranbir Kapoor's Jagga Jasoos tanked as well.
It seems, Akshay Kumar has been rightfully reviewed by foreign media as 'Bollywood's banker' - "Akshay Kumar is Bollywood's banker, churning out hit after hit, including Rustom, Airlift, and the Jolly LLB franchise," read a report by Variety magazine.
Meanwhile, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha's performance also earned the movie a shout-out from Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna:
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha also stars Bhumi Pednekar and reflects the theme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The movie focusses on the importance of better sanitation facilities India, especially in rural areas.
