Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar said children are most affected owing to open defecation. His new film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is based on the importance of building toilets.
Akshay said in a statement, “Kids are the ones who are most affected due to open defecation as they are so vulnerable to diseases. Through my movie, I am urging each Indian household to build toilets to keep their children healthy and happy.”
Akshay has received support for his film from popular Nickelodeon toon Shiva. “I am glad to join Shiva who has himself been a behavioural change agent and kids’ favourite whizkid to spread my message and together drive change,” he added.
