Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar have wrapped up Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and this first still from their romcom is awkward yet cute! The plot of the film is a tribute to PM Narendra Modi’s Swach Bharat Abhiyaan. Apparently, it’s a love story between a man who owns a pay-and-use toilet and a woman who uses it regularly. Cupid strikes between the two of them and they get hitched. Ever since the pic of Bhumi and Akshay surfaced, we’ve been waiting to see the fresh pair this year.
This first still from the movie, however, gives us a mixed feeling. Ranging between awkward and cute, we’re perplexed about whether it is a love story or is it them playing stereotypes of coming from a small town? Well, that’s a question we’d ask you. As you can see, this pic has both Akshay and Bhumi standing in an awkward pose draped in a wedding suit. This is probably the climax of the film as according to the storyline, the couple fall in love and get married later.
This is the first time that we’re seeing Bhumi pair up with Akshay. Although technically it’s her third film ( the, second being Manmarziyan with Ayushmann Khurrana) however, her second with Khurrana had to be shelved. It’s quite a big step for Pednekar as she is working with a superstar. As Akshay shared this pic, he tweeted, “With the wrap of @ToiletTheFilm treating you guys to a still from the film…Keshav and Jaya’s unique love story coming to you on June 2 :)”
We bet you did not know following facts about Bhumi’s first movie:
- Before becoming an actress, Bhumi was assistant to Shanoo, the casting director of Yash Raj films.
- Bhumi had no idea that she was auditioned for the film Dum Laga Ke Haisha. She thought her performance would be used as demo to brief other actors during auditions.
- Rani Mukerji reportedly saw portions of Dum Laga Ke Haisha and liked Bhumi’s work so much that she personally looked for Bhumi in the YRF office and congratulated her.
- According to a report Bhumi had auditioned for the lead role at least 100 times. The report further stated that Bhumi was an active part of the auditions for Dum Laga Ke
