MUMBAI MIRROR (May 2, 2017)

Akshay Kumar, who was at the Transform Maharashtra event in Mumbai on Monday, said that the government should set up mobile toilets across Maharashtra.

“Government should plan (putting up) mobile toilets every 500 meters or one km across the state. It will support cleanliness. It should be supported with an app to locate it (the nearest mobile toilet),” the actor was quoted as saying, adding that women in rural areas face a lot of difficulties as there are hardly any public toilets in villages.

Akshay, whose upcoming film Toilet - Ek Prem Katha deals with the issue of lack of toilets, cited a dialogue from the film: “Agar biwi chahiye paas, toh ghar me chahiye Sandaas (if you want the wife to stay with you, ensure you have toilet at home).”
