Bhumi Pednekar and Akshay Kumar’s movie ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ has completed two years of its release.
Rejoicing the news, Bhumi Pednekar had a piece of special news to share. While celebrating two years of movie’s completion, the 29-year-old actress took to Instagram sharing the big news. Bhumi wrote that the film aimed at sanitation and the construction of toilets in rural India. She recalled the movie which made her more “humble, socially aware”.
“2 Years of #ToiletEkPremKatha. TEPK made me more humble, socially aware and put me on the path to make the world a better place by spreading awareness on sanitation.”
She added that she didn’t limit herself to the film but reached out to a school in Chambal, Madhya Pradesh which has fully functional toilets today.
“We constantly are trying to provide better facilities to the children of Abhyudaya Ashram Morena Chambal. And on the 2nd anniversary of TEPK am proud to say that, the new hostels and toilets are fully functional today,” Bhumi added in her post.
She added that nothing can be more gratifying than the love one can spread. The film that released in 2017 dealt with the menace of open defecation. The film was based on a real-life incident wherein a woman left her husband after finding out that there was no toilet in their house.
The film was helmed by Shree Narayan Singh and this was Akshay and Bhumi’s first film together.
On the work front, Bhumi Pednekar will play the role of one of the world’s oldest sharpshooters in Tushar Hiranandani’s ‘Saand Ki Aankh’. The film is about the story of Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar, two women from Uttar Pradesh who took up sharpshooting in their fifties.
She will also be seen in the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh alongside Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday.
