Toilet: Ek Prem Katha hit the domestic box office in August 2017 and had won accolades for choosing to showcase an unconventional story, highlighting the problem of open defecation in the country. Akshay and Bhumi play a newlywed couple, who head for splitsville after the duo have a fight over the absence of a toilet in the house. Helmed by Shree Narayan Singh, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is co-produced by Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar. The cast also includes Anupam Kher.
