Akshay Kumar-starrer Toilet Ek Prem Katha’s trailer has left the audiences impressed. While Akshay is being showered with praises for the trailer, which released two days back, a fan’s gesture of appreciation left the star a bit emotional. After watching the trailer, a fan of Akshay got so inspired that he helped his friend build a toilet and also, asked others to do the same. When Akshay got to know about it, he tweeted, “THIS! Can’t applaud or praise you enough. Stupendous work! Proud to have fans like you. Love and prayers.”
Not only fans but even Prime Minister Narendra Modi is thankful to Akshay for promoting his Clean India campaign in such a way. “Good effort to further the message of cleanliness. 125 crore Indians have to continue working together to create a Swachh Bharat,” wrote PM Modi. In response to PM’s tweet, the 45-year-old actor said, “Thank you so much honourable Sir 🙏🏻 Hope we succeed in changing mindsets and truly making a difference.”
Toilet Ek Prem Katha is an attempt by Shree Narayan Singh to bring forth the need of a toilet in every household. The trailer also speaks about the mindset of people and why only half of our country’s population has been able to have access to a toilet.
THIS! Can’t applaud or praise you enough. Stupendous work! Proud to have fans like you. Love and prayers 🙏🏻 http://t.co/RkNOJ5o5aP
