Toilet: Ek Prem Katha's deals with sanitation and the issue of open defecation in India. Jaya (Bhumi), a strong-willed woman, falls in love with Keshav (Akshay), a simple man and ultimately the duo get married. On the first day at her in-laws place, Jaya is introduced to the lota gang (a group of women who defecate in the open) as there's no toilet in Keshav's home. Jaya reacts and starts a battle against the practice of open defecation and urges to build toilets in the entire village. Her cause is well-supported by Keshav.
"Women, stop defecating in open and don't marry a person who doesn't have toilet in their home," said Akshay during the live chat.
Answering a question related to the highlights of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Akshay said that the biggest USP of the film is its love story and how Jaya reacts to the absence of toilet in her husband's home and how the whole change comes. "A man can defecate in open easily, although it's wrong. But for a woman, it is a private time. In our country, we have always respected women but sending them out to defecate is not respect." Akshay also urged the viewers to make people understand the importance of toilets. "It's a laughter-riot and people can watch this entertaining film till the end," added Akshay.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, directed by Shree Narayan Singh, releases on August 11.
