The trailer of Akshay Kumar's upcoming social drama Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, directed by Shree Narayan Singh, will be launched on 11 June. The film has been in news for its quirky love story and its intent to support the cause of anti-open defecation.

Kumar posted a video on his Twitter page that shows how he and his Toilet: Ek Prem Katha co-star Bhumi Pednekar are enjoying a cricket match inside a toilet. They have chosen to do so within the confines of the toilet so as to secure an interruption free experience. However, their spot boy gets a misleading idea when he eavesdrops their conversations dominated by gasps of unadulterated excitement.

But Kumar soon clarifies to his spot boy that a toilet should be a must for every home as it not only tends to the nature's call but also serves as a brainstorming area for innovative ideas as well. While this package was an innovative idea to promote their trailer launch at a cricket event on 11 June, it also discounts the tough lives of people who are struggling to avail the primary use of a toilet than indulging in luxurious acts such as enjoying a cricket match inside a spotlessly clean toilet. However, the rough cut of the trailer was shown to multiple acclaimed film critics who had nothing but compliments to pay to the film.

Also, Filmfare reports that Kumar will miss the trailer launch on 11 June as he is traveling to Europe for a family vacation to celebrate his mother-in-law and veteran actor Dimple Kapadia's 60th birthday on 8 June. Kumar and his family will reportedly visit London, Paris and Italy during their tour.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is slated to release on 11 August.
