We All Know We Need More Toilets in the Country. But Can Anybody Say It Better Than Akshay Kumar?

Akshay Kumar wants you to pay attention to the country’s toilets. Or rather, the lack of it to be more specific. The actor, who is known for his philanthropic efforts, has taken to his social media platforms to talk about how as a society, there ought to be more emphasis on sanitation and hygiene.

Through a video, Kumar speaks about how he came across unhealthy facts about the problems millions of Indians face regarding sanitation while doing research for his film, Toilet Ek Prem Katha. Right off the bat, he makes one request from those watching his appeal, “Watch, think and share your views.”

He notes, “Despite the fact our country is a super-power, more than half the population, especially women, can’t go to toilet when they need it the most because more often than not, they don’t even have toilets in their homes.”

This becomes a problem for women who sometimes have to force their bodies to act against their own anatomy thus causing health problems down the road. He goes on to explaining that this leads to even the children of the nation getting diseases that would otherwise would be avoidable.

Ultimately, it is time we held ourselves accountable for ensuring every Indian has access to something as basic as clean and hygienic sanitation.
