Akshay Kumar Reveals Some Toilet Truths For a Swachh Bharat

Akshay Kumar is fast turning out to be the poster boy of Bollywood’s equivalent of corporate social responsibility. After generously donating to the families of army jawans, airing his views on sexual harassment of women, promoting ayurveda - the actor has now posted a video talking about the issue of lack of toilets in India and questioned our culture of not paying heed or giving priority to the importance of hygiene.

While he adds the disclaimer that he is not promoting his upcoming film - Toilet Ek Prem Katha, he also calls out the hypocrisy of our society wherein we keep stressing about the honour of our women but expect them to defecate out in the open.
