India has an eminent movie industry. It is also sadly known for its bad sanitation and lack of toilets in rural and underdeveloped parts of the country. TOILET: Ek Prem Katha – a movie made by Shree Narayan Singh, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, has received attention from Bill Gates.
TOILET: EK PREM KATHA
The film focusses on a newly married couple who educate audiences on India’s toilet problems. The movie is a satirical love story with a strong message.
It’s quite hard to find romance when you have to defecate openly. It’s a funny movie and a little heartbreaking but has the capacity to educate people and has the capacity to incite change.
The movie was inspired by the Indian Prime Minister’s campaign to clean up toilets and to build and provide more toilets all around India.
TOILET: Ek Prem Katha movie became a huge success in India but it needs to get the attention of big corporates and people who have the ability and means to make changes.
