However, before the toilet part of the title comes Prem Katha. Akshay Kumar (Keshav) wants to be married as soon as possible. Soon he meets his dream girl, Bhumi Pednekar, and both are soon married. It is the morning after the marriage that Bhumi is rudely introduced to lota gang for Akshay’s house has no toilet. She soon leaves him due to this and Akshay, who is deeply in love with his wife, wants to set an example just like Shah Jahaan but instead of making Taj Mahal, wants to bring in awareness about the risks of defecating in open and wants to build a toilet at home. But would he be able to succeed in a village where people think it is wrong to place toilet in a home that worships goddess Tulsi? Well, you have to witness the climax on August 11.
