"Good morning and I guess here is the first scene of Toilet Ek Prem Katha part 2", she had tweeted along with a picture of a man defecating on the Versova beach.

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 actor bore all the expenses, Rs 10 lakh, for setting up the portable toilet", he told PTI. 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.

Akshay Kumar has teamed up with Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray and has spent around the sum of 10 lac Rupees for the bio- toilets. The toilet has six seats, three each for men and women, and a separate row of urinals.

Later, Akshay came in support of his wife and chose to fund the campaign with Rs 10,00,000 in collaboration with the youth icon and politician Aaditya Thackeray. 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.

Meanwhile, last year, the BMC launched a campaign to eradicate open defecation but the problem open defecation persisted in Mumbai.

Khanna's post had come a month after the city was declared open defecation free by the Quality Council of India. Many were pondering the reason's over Akshay's silence but were unaware of the actor's plan to solve the defecation problem. According to the data available with the municipal corporation, there were 117 major open defecation spots in the city but the BMC claims that these open defecation spots have been dealt with. Therefore, Mumbai needs over 1 lakh toilet seats to cater to just 63 per cent of its population.
