Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who is gearing
up for the release of "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha", says working with her
co-actor Akshay Kumar in the film was a "delight".
Talking about Akshay, Bhumi told IANS over phone from Mumbai: "He is fantastic. He is actually a delight to work with. 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and I definitely have to credit him and the core team for that."
The 27-year-old actress says it felt like a long holiday while working for the film.
"It never felt that we are working, it was a like one long happy holiday. It felt like a bunch of very passionate people who have come together to have fun and everything else would just fall into place," Bhumi added.
"Toilet: Ek Prem Katha" is reportedly inspired by the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
A love story with a satirical flavour, the movie is directed by Shree Narayan Singh, and produced by Aruna Bhatia, Plan C Studios and Abundantia, and presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment.
It will be the first time that Akshay will be featuring in a film with the "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" star Bhumi. The project also marks Akshay and actor Anupam Kher's 20th film together.
