Leaving Baahubali 2 aside, Akshay Kumar starrer has witnessed the best numbers in 2017. Of course, Salman Khan’s Tubelight also managed to enter 100 crore club in a week but considering the budget and kind of content, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has come as a winner. The film is made on a much smaller budget and has easily surpassed the business of Kaabil, Akshay’s own film Jolly LLB 2 and recent release, Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has no competition in coming weeks until the release of Ajay Devgn’s Baadshaho on September 1st. There are films like Bareilly Ki Barfi, A Gentleman and Qaidi Band releasing this month but those, of course, won’t make difference to the business of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a story about a woman (Bhumi), who leaves her husband (Akshay) on the first day of their marriage after discovering that their house doesn't have a toilet. He then desperately sets out on a mission to win back his love by standing up to the age-old traditions and values of India. The satirical comedy film is also said to be a part of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiative.
