New Delhi:

The Central Board of Film Certification has ordered 8 verbal cuts in Akshay Kumar starrer Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. This is a film based on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and creates awareness regarding open defecation.

If source are to be belived than it is said that there are some dialogues mouthed by Akhsya’s character in the film are not amusing and have sanctity attached to them. The reaction of the team on CBFC’s decision is still awaited.

Akshay Kumar will be seen sharing the screen space for the first time with actress Bhumi Pednekar. The film is Directed by Shree Narayan Singh and is all set to hit the screens on August 11. The actor will next be seen in Gold alongside Mouni Roy.

“In one sequence, Akshay Kumar is heard telling his screen-wife, ‘Tumne mujhe teen baar jagaya hai. Main koi saand hoon kya (you’ve woken me up thrice…am I a bull?)’. In another sequence, a character says, he goes to pee with a rassi (thread) around his ears. He means the sacred janao worn by Brahmins. And we saw no reason for something with such sanctity attached to it being referred to so facetiously,” says a source.
