Akshay Kumar sponsors Rs 10 lakh worth gift to Juhu beach visitors
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar funded mobile toilets near Juhu Beach, following a tweet from wife Twinkle Khanna about a man defecating on the Versova beach. The toilets are worth 10 lakhs and are built in association with Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
“We welcomed his initiative and installed the toilet near the Juhu beach. The actor bore all the expenses, Rs 10 lakh, for setting up the portable toilet,” said Prashant Gaikwad, Assistant municipal commissioner.
Meanwhile, Twinkle has tweeted the issue, while witnessing locals defecating in the open, during her morning walks. “Good morning and I guess here is the first scene of Toilet Ek Prem Katha part 2,” was her tweet along with the picture of a man defecating on the Versova beach.
The tweet came at a time when Akshay was making the feature “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha”, inspired by ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ Clean India Initiative of the Union Government.
