Toilet Ek Prem Katha is a romantic comedy, not a documentary: Akshay Kumar

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Akshay Kumar is gearing up for his upcoming release Toilet Ek Prem Katha. In a recent interview with Firstpost, the actor talked about this film and his upcoming projects.

Akshay works at a rapid pace however he has only two releases this year. Talking about it he said, “Are you trying to say that I am slowing down? Or are you trying to say that I’m lazy?” “I have completed Padman, 2.0 and half of Gold is completed. We have not been able to announce a release date for Padman yet. There is no date available, because we have so many releases,” says Akshay.

He was happy that the clash between Jab Harry Met Sejal and TEPK has been averted. “Everybody is happy when films don’t clash, but unfortunately there are only 52 weeks and  180 releases, so some clashes are bound to happen. And then, we also have films from Hollywood and the South,” he says.

Akshay also talked about TEPK. “I want to help people with the help of media and government. Even if you don’t want to write about the film, it is fine, but certainly write about the issue and what women have to go through. They have to walk three kilometres to relieve themselves. They wait for sunset and leave in a group, with the fear of rape. It is a huge issue and I am doing my bit with this film,” says Akshay.

However, the actor clarifies that Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a romantic comedy and not a documentary. “I am not giving any message, it is only towards the end that it gets a bit serious. It has got loads of masala and action besides four to five songs. Toilet humour is also shown in a different way and along with that there is a true story,” he says.

Also starring Bhumi Pednekar, the film will release on 11 August 2017.

    Boom! 💥

    For all those that were saying Shah Rukh Khan was doing the same old Romantic comedy, I suppose every movie has some message at the end!

    • Believe it or not but frankly i m neither interested for jhms nor tepk.

      For both i vl wait for reviews nd then i vl decide. waiting for badshaho.

    • Also in JHMS , 51 years old doing romantic movies.. By the way Akshay is 25 years old i believe as he is going romantic movie…

      I m really excited .
      This year only 2 months have crap releases.
      1st was june which gave maha disaster tubelight nd second would be december which will give crap Tiger Zinda hai. I think after this 3rd movie will be Tiger Mar Gaya.

      Yrr ek baat hai waise sab dheere dheere sudhar rahe hai . Kahi log yeh samajh gaye hai ki fan war mein kuch nahi rakha par ye @being prem fan shayas kutte ki poonch hai
      Ise tubelight k disaster hone k baad bhi koi sharam nahi aayi . Abhi to december mein maza aayega. Jab Tiger Mar Jaaega.

    • More like who cares to watch a fucking criminal in a hero role :)

  3. He is scared about srk..
    Srk no comments about his movie or tepk but Akshay continues..

    • Acha to clash kisne Avert kiya . Akshay sir ne chatti thok k clash mol le liya. Par SRK ne darr k clash avert kr liya. Ab bol darpoook kon hai . Mai SRK ka hater nahi hoon . Par tujh jaiso ko jawaab dena zaruri hai. I hope dono movies hit ho.

      Shah Rukh Khan has returned the favour to Akshay Kumar for When he moved his release at chennai express time!

  4. TEPK is in a true sense universally appealing film. It has romance, social satire, humor, family values, desiness, masala and as Akki said in this article “action”. So Toilet Ek Prem Katha is actually the first universal film of 2017..

    Akki was ignoring single screens since 2016 but now he is back there too.

    • Universal..!! :D, only for India.. Hahahaha. A country where more than 55% doesn’t have or don not want to use sanitation… Illustrious.

  5. To ab kya kahenge akki k fans tht toilet is not a rom com you all were bashing srk for doing rom com then whts this?
    I am a Srkian but also love Akki..lets not spread hatred some aamir fans are so stupid they are just spreading hatred.. We love both Srk nd Akki..don’t create fanwar!
    It’s a Request to all!
    Especially Parshya and roric you two guys plz stop yr we are proud of Aamir don’t bash others plz!

      Yrr yeh baat nahi hai . Dono movies achi hongi par gerne mein farak hai . JHMS ek typical rom – com movie hai . Par TEPK ek universally appealing rom – com hai vo bhi message k saath.

        I have given my opinion honestly without any hatred don’t bring me in your silly fanwars, can you challenge me your opinion will come true, but wait and watch the actual collection will be in the range of my prediction
        U wanna bet me.

        • Chal theek hai beta . Ab mard ki zubaan hui. Beta screenshot lele . Phir dekhi ki baap kon hai . Tu kehta hai ki TEPK 9cr kregi . Beta TEPK is se kaafi zyada kregi. Aur tu kehta hai ki TZH 45cr kregi. Beta yeh ho hi nahi skta. TZH 30cr bhi kr jaae to bahut hai.

        • Beta this planet is earth but ur mind is of pluto . Golmaal is clashing with SS and usually movie pick up after diwali day . So 15cr is prediction considering mixed response to trailer.

        • Kung Fu Yoga Reply

          @housefull ur predictions are perfect . Leave this taran. Isko lagta hai shayad golmaal 1st day 30cr kr legi. For comedy movie with a clash 15cr is perfect . Lifetime would depend upon word of mouth.

        • @taran bhai golmaal 4 se itna expect mat kr. Now a days comedy is not working . Nd also it is clashing . Golmaal 4 agar 15cr bhi kr jaae to excellent start hogi. Golmaal franchise Waise bhi housefull franchise se niche hai. Only golmaal 3 was good other 2 parts were average. Agar 100 cr bhi kr jaae to kaafi hai.

    • Overall these look good. I will increase TEPK to 10 plus. Judwaa lower to around 17 cr. TZH lower to around 40 cr. These are hunches as we are yet to see the trailers which are very important for FBO.

  7. TEPK is in lines with Dangal…based on small towns…

    Should do huge..There will be holidays also. Dangal had no holidays-Because Xmas and New year both fell on Sunday……
    Speaks a lot about Aamir Khan’s stardom.

    • Hahaha kitna bata stupid idiot hai tu December ending se le ke January 2nd week tak school band rehte hai sb family vala jaata hai or Haan saal ka aakhri samay rehta hai to sb ghumta hai 20 Dec se le ke 2 Jan tak sb ghumta hai office me bhi utna kaam nahi rehta us vaqt

  8. ab sabhi haters aayenge or bolna shuru karenge ya krdia bhai at least give movie a chance release to hone do phir bolna. apni Hindi cinema ko band mat hone do these two movies are very important for our industry. so be ve fans don’t show disrespect to others work.
