Amidst all the controversies, Toilet Ek Prem Katha got released in over 3000 screens in India, much more than the number of toilets in any village of India. Movie’s main focus is on the sanitation problem in India.
While movie is doing well in most parts of the country, a theatre showing the movie in Bandra made people leave the movie midway as the theater was stinking badly.
A theater in Bandra showing Toilet Ek Prem Katha had to halt its show for more than an hour after people started leaving the show mid-way and asked for refund, complaining theater is stinking of foul smell which the audience found unbearable to sit and watch the movie.
The owner of the cinema hall, Mr. Dhole, had to intervene. Mr. Dhole gave such an argument that people who were earlier demanding refund ended up paying extra for the same tickets. Mr. Dhole called the stinking problem a 4D experience.
Faking News reporter spoke to Mr. Dhole, Mr. Dhole said, “Theater wasn’t stinking but it was the nearby Shulabh Sauchalaya, which municipal government has been ignoring. I don’t find it wrong calling it a 4D experience. This is what happens in 4D movies, I have seen a few, and people pay more than thrice of the actual price for the same movie. I had the opportunity of making money so I did.”
Similar incident happened in Mumbai Metro trains during inaugural days in 2014. Mumbai metro was supposed to ease Mumbaikars’ woes but it troubled them after rain shower seeped into a compartment. Later Mumbai Metro Chief (MMC) called it adventure ride with 4D experience. Instead of getting criticzed, MMC was appreciated for his quick wittedness.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha shows how the government is taking various steps to resolve the problem of sanitation across the nation. But it’s also government’s duty to make people aware of various health hazards that can happen due to improper sanitation. Not only the government, every one of us wants a cleaner and healthier society and has a role to play in this mass movement called Swacch Bharat, Swasth Bharat.
