"We constantly are trying to provide better facilities to the children of Abhyudaya Ashram Morena Chambal. And on the 2nd anniversary of TEPK am proud to say that, the new hostels and toilets are fully functional today," Bhumi added in her post.

Nothing can be more gratifying than the love one can spread, said Bhumi in her post.

The film was based on a real-life incident wherein a woman left her husband after finding out that there was no toilet in their house. With Shree Narayan Singh in the director's chair, this is the first time that Akshay Kumar collaborated with Bhumi.
