The Toilet Ek Prem Katha star himself
became a victim of criticism on social media
when his wife Twinkle Khanna took to
social media to complain about the open
defecation problem in Juhu beach. The
actress turned entrepreneur was criticized
and also applauded by the twitteratis alike
for her step. And now, considering the
increase in the problem of open defecation
at their area Juhu beach located in
suburban Mumbai, Akshay Kumar has
decided to collaborate with the youth icon
and politician Aditya Thackeray to end this
The Government had kick started the
campaign of constructing loos and
providing facilities to reduce the problem of
open defecation. However, whilst doing the
same, even in Juhu beach by far, there has
been only one public toilet only at the main
entrance of the 6kms spread of the beach.
However, talking about the recent
collaboration, Akshay Kumar and Aditya
Thackeray will be installing toilets across
the beach. It is expected to have three toilet
seats for men and women each and also a
separate urinal.
It is also expected to take preventive
measures to avoid stink. If reports are to be
believed Assistant Municipal commissioner
K-West Ward, Prashant Gaikwad stated that
the toilet will have bio-digesters in order to
prevent the stink. He also asserted that it
will not only bring relief to the slum-
dwellers in the area but also visitors. We
hear that they will be spending
approximately Rs. 10 lakhs for the
construction of these toilets.
The open-defecation free campaign is a
part of the government's famous Swachh
Bharat Abhiyaan. Despite the constant
efforts shown by Bollywood celebs along
with politicians, Mumbai city continues to
face open-defecation issues. From what we
hear, the city is falling short of
approximately 60,000 toilets to declare
itself as open defecation free.
On the other hand, this is the second time
where Akshay Kumar is collaborating with
Aditya Thackeray. The duo has joined hands
previously to start self-defense classes for
women to help them defend themselves
from increasing amount of crimes.
