Love from Fans Bigger than Box Office Collections : Akshay Kumar. Akshay Kumar talks about Box Office, Films, Various Scripts and Toilet : Ek Prem Katha.
Ask him about delivering back to back box office hits, he says, “For me the love my audience is more important than the business. I think I have earned enough money. It is also important to get right script, character, director and studio. It was my first experience with them and I would want to do more films for them.”
“I don’t plan anything; I decide to do the film only when I like the subject. If I feel that I need to bring out this issue then I go ahead. Like I am doing a film, Toilet –Ek Prem Katha, I am sure many of you know that 54% of Indian people do not have toilet. Isn’t it an alarming thing? I got a good script, so I said that I want to make this film. It is a taboo thing to talk about. When I announced the name, many people called me to ask why I am using this title. This issue is there on the face, so I am talking about it and why should we run away from it. It is one of biggest problems we have. There are about 1000 children that die due to diarrhoea in India. It is a real story and I thought if the messages will be conveyed in a commercial way, it will help to reach to larger audience. Government has made toilets but people don’t use it and turn it into a commercial place. India is number one country which has no toilets in proportion to population. It is a shameful thing.” says Akshay Kumar while talking about the different scripts and the reason for signing Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
