After all the big budget films of 2017 failed at the box office, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is showing an upward trend by breaking the box office jinx. The movie is a political satire that deals with the issues of sanitation and lack of toilets in the rural parts of India. The theme of the film is picked from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
Akshay Kumar took to twitter to thank all his fans, critics and the film fraternity for its success.
Earlier this year, Akshay Kumar had delivered the legal drama, Jolly LLB 2. Both his films have made it to the list of highest openers so far this year. Jolly LLB 2 stands at the fifth position and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is the sixth highest opener of 2017.
The movie was made on a budget of Rs 18 crore. It is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and also stars Anupam Kher, Divyendu Sharma and Sudhir Pandey.
