According to the reports, The movie “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” has opened to a decent occupancy and as per the estimate, it has collected a good amount on day one. Looking at the Akshay Kumar’s previous movies like “Jolly LLB 2” had collected 13.20 crore on its first day, “Rustom” too had collected the same range as it collected 14.11 crore on its first day and “Housefull 3” which grossed 15.21 crores in its 1st day.

The movie has picked up the pace from the evening show and it seems like it will gross 15 crores on its 1 day at the Box office. However, the movie has an advantage of a public holiday, Independence Day, on Tuesday so the movie has a chance to earn more on that day.

The movie is based on the true incidents and on the importance of toilets in rural areas. In the movie, Akshay Kumar will be seen playing the role of Keshav and the only thing he dreams of is getting married until he meets Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) and falls in love.

However, she fights back along with Keshav. Going against all odds, Keshav and Jaya attempt to bring a change in their family’s thought and take on a political battle over open defecation and sanitation.
