I wish the ticket price of Toilet:EPK is low, want more people to watch: Akshay Kumar

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has said he wants to keep the ticket prices of his upcoming film ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ low, so that more people can watch it in theatres.

“I wish the ticket price of this film (Toilet: Ek Prem Katha) to be low so that more people can go and watch the film. Around 54 per cent people in our country have no access to toilets. So, my concern is to make people aware of the issue. They should go and watch the film rather than (us) counting on the box office collection”

Talking about the film getting tax exemption, Akshay said the distributors have already applied for tax exemption.

“So far there is no confirmation, but yes, the Viacom18 people applied for tax exemption. Let’s see what happens.”

‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ releases in theatres on August 11.

  • Akshay sir jaisa acha insaan aur koi nahi ho skta. This man has golden heart . He is doing so much for our country . So it becomes a duty of all indians to watch his movie TEPK nd understand what he wants to convey. Yrr meri haath jod kr sabhi haters se request hai ki insult krne ki jagah Akki sir ki baat smajhne ki koshish karo . Shayad society mein change aa jaae.

It’s because it was reported by the media that SRK has donated this much blah blah blah..

    • we already know the message the movie wants to convey as from last 3 years modi jee is saying the same thing time and again. so no need to go to theatre just for the message.

  • Donate all the money which your movie will earn from all over the world for making toilets at home after deducting your budget….then ask about box office numbers…

      • If his only intention is to give message to society then why releasing it in theatres, rather than premiering it on TV. These days everyone is engaged in making money only, whether they raise Hindu Muslim or toilet, Rustom, airlift, padman etc…

  • Most people criticizing him probably dream of settling in the US. Some people raise bars unnaturally high for actors and don’t realize the hypocrisy in the tragedy of their words

  • This film is not having as much buzz as it was expected neither is JHMS is having good buzz. Bahubali has severaly affected Bollywood as its consequences can be seen even 3 months after its release. I don’t know how much time it will take to things become normal again. May be upto Diwali.

  • TEPK is a perfect film for Independence Day. If we exclude Bahubali 2, 2017 has been a nightmare for Bollywood so far. So the success of JHMS and TEPK in the coming weeks is very important for a the industry. Tax emption could be a huge boost to the film. I hope it works with both masses and multiplex audience. Currently the buzz to watch TEPK isn’t very high, but if the content clicks the film may find its audience.

    • We all know ki, Tere aur tere dada aur pardada ke paas toilet banane ke paise nahi hai tabhi to sabhi pariwar ke saath khulle mein hagne jate ho Tum log…

      Ye movie vishesh taur par Tere pariwar aur Tere liye hi bani hai to dekhna mat bhulna, Shayad aqal lekar ghar mein toilet bana lo…

      Lode jaisi shaql hai to yahi expect kiya jaa sakta hai Tujhhse, Bhaag Bh*sdi Ke…
