Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has saved the sinking ship of an ailing film industry. With this, wife Twinkle Khanna mocked Salman Khan’s Tubelight and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Salman Khan’s Tubelight and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal bombed at the box office. Both the films failed to live up to audience expectations. Tubelight, Jab Harry Met Sejal have flopped despite having stars like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, which only proves that content is the king and audience reviews surely matter.
Well, the first half of 2017 has been a darker phase for the Bollywood industry with no big hits. However, Akshay Kumar’s latest release Toilet: Ek Prem Katha saves the sinking ship and is inching to Rs 100 crore club.
After knowing about the film’s Box Office update and the positive reviews that are doing rounds on the social media, Twinkle Khanna had taken to twitter saying, “So even the box office needed this Toilet eventually to break free from its constipation-#ToiletEkPremKath Hit Hit Hooray!”
