Inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat initiative, the film hopes to further the government's campaign against open defecation.

Also starring Bhumi Pednekar, the film will be shot between November and January and though there's no confirmation about it, some reports suggest that the film will tentatively be released in late May or early June next year.

Neeraj Pandey, who's closely associated with the film told Hindustan Times, "The film (Toilet: Ek Prem Katha) is not being directed by me. It is a script written by my team members – Siddharth and Garima. I just mentored them. The project is going on the floors by the end of this year, and it’s going to be directed by my editor."

Apart from the satirical comedy the actor will also be seen in Jolly LLB 2, Neeraj Pandey's Crack and Rajinikanth's Robot 2.0 next year.
