Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who will soon be seen sharing the screen space with actor Akshay Kumar in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, is all praises for the star. She stated that working with Khiladi Kumar was a delight and felt like a happy holiday while shooting for the film. Both the actors are coming together for the first time. The recently released trailer of the flick generated curiosity and received positive response from the audiences.
Talking about Akshay, Bhumi told IANS over phone from Mumbai: "He is fantastic. He is actually a delight to work with. 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and I definitely have to credit him and the core team for that."
The 27-year-old actress says it felt like a long holiday while working for the film.
"It never felt that we are working, it was a like one long happy holiday. It felt like a bunch of very passionate people who have come together to have fun and everything else would just fall into place," Bhumi added.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is reportedly inspired by the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha marks Akshay and actor Anupam Kher's 20th film together. The project has been bankrolled by Aruna Bhatia, Plan C Studios and Abundantia, and presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment.
