Check out the poster here:
Akshay, in an interview with Bollywoodlife, said, “I’m doing a film called Toilet. I feel very strongly about it, about women. Because I met few of the women in India, who have no other choice than to go to fields for open defecation. They go there and so much of problems happen. 54% India doesn’t have toilets.”
He further said, “I was reading somewhere if open defecation stops completely in India, 30% of rape cases would come down. Because when they go in the fields and all, men are waiting there. This is what happens. It’s a very serious offence.”
