Toilet: Ek Prem Katha crosses 100 crore in India

Published: 20th August 2017

Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which attempts to spread the message of eradicating open defecation in an entertaining vein, surpassed the Rs 100 crore mark on the eighth day since its release in India, its makers said on Saturday.

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the film also features Bhumi Pednekar and Anupam Kher in key roles. The movie, which hit the screens on August 11, minted Rs 100.05 crore till Friday. Its success has--in Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna's words--helped the box office to "break free from constipation" after big ticket films like Jagga Jasoos and Jab Harry Met Sejal failed to elicit the expected response.

Bhumi, who plays the role of a woman who demands a toilet in her husband's house, was ecstatic and shared her joy on Twitter.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha also takes forward Akshay's golden run at the box office after his entertainers Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom and Jolly LLB 2.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is Akshay Kumar's eighth Rs 100 crore grosser. The second highest after Salman Khan (11 Rs 100 crore grossers)."

Meanwhile, Twinkle posted on social media a beach selfie, with a man in the backdrop relieving himself., and a tongue-in-cheek caption.
