Bhumi Pednekar, who is gearing up for the release of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, says working with her co-actor Akshay Kumar in the film was a “delight”. Talking about Akshay, Bhumi told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “He is fantastic. He is actually a delight to work with. ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and I definitely have to credit him and the core team for that.”
The 27-year-old actress says it felt like a long holiday while working for the film. “It never felt that we are working, it was a like one long happy holiday. It felt like a bunch of very passionate people who have come together to have fun and everything else would just fall into place,” Bhumi added.
“Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” is reportedly inspired by the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A love story with a satirical flavour, the movie is directed by Shree Narayan Singh, and produced by Aruna Bhatia, Plan C Studios and Abundantia, and presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment.
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 a few 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.
It will be the first time that Akshay will be featuring in a film with the Dum Laga Ke Haisha star Bhumi. The project also marks Akshay and actor Anupam Kher’s 20th film together.
