Akshay Kumar is busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha' these days. In a promotional event organized for the film, Akshay wielded a broom alongside Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath. The film features actress Bhumi Pednekar who is acting in her second film after Dum Lagake Haisha. Bhumi and Akshay arrived at the school raised awareness about cleanliness while promoting the film. The actors plan to tour different cities to promote the film ahead of its release next week. The film tries to promote Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already given a thumbs up to the film ahead of its release. Akshay has been acting in films which have a sense of nationalistic value imbibed in them. The actor is trying hard to woo the right wing supporters of the country. Akshay won the National Award for his film ‘Rustom' earlier this year and his win was debated largely on the social media as the year saw many promising acting performances. Toilet will face competition from Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma's film which opened on August 4. The film has opened to a good response at the box office and is doing phenomenal business in the overseas markets as well.

Toilet will be Akshay's second release this year after Jolly LLB 2 which released in the month of February. The film will release in theatres during the Independence Day weekend. It remains to be seen if the film will score at the box office or not.
