Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is all set to chase Akshay's 2012 blockbuster Rowdy Rathore, which remains the Bollywood Khiladi's highest scoring movie so far. Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to express his excitement
The social satire came after the debacle of big-budget films like Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight, Ranbir Kapoor's musical Jagga Jasoos and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal. Toilet-Ek Prem Katha was a much-needed hit to break the dry spell at the box office.
This film's success can largely be attributed to its storyline. The plot is based on the issues of sanitation and lack of toilets in the rural parts of India. The audience seems to have accepted a movie that rides high on sending a social message.
Made on a budget of Rs 18 crore, Toilet Ek Prem Katha is already a blockbuster. Although it received mixed reviews, the film has received a huge thumbs up from the audience and continues to run steadily at the box office.
