The gripping trailer of the Akshay Kumar-Bhumi Pednekar satirical comedy Toilet: Ek Prem Katha was released, and it has raised the expectations of viewers, as well as introduced us to the basic story line of the film.

Kumar plays a country bumpkin who is married to Pednekar, a fiery woman who pushes him to get involved in a political battle over sanitation in the village after she faces much humiliation due to the lack of a toilet in their house. While Kumar's character cracks one-liners at the start of the trailer, he turns sombre towards the end.
