Akshay Kumar is all gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Toilet Ek Prem Katha. The actor will be seen promoting his film on every platform and also taking the initiative of addressing the sanitation problem in India. Recently, the actor was asked if he deliberately chose to do socially conscious films.
To this, he said, "We are trying to address issues in films, with a dash of comedy, romance and action. My next film is Padman, which is based on sanitary napkins. More than 90 percent of Indian women can’t even afford them. It’s an issue not really talked about.”
Talking about his next film PadMan, he said, “Do you want me to do a documentary or a commercial film? The film is about that issue, but it’s fictionalized and commercialized to appeal to all audiences.”
Talking about his film with Rajinikanth, 2.0, he said, "At this point, I can only tell you that I’m the villain, who gets beaten up by Rajinikanth."
