Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey booked the Independence Day 2017 weekend for the release of their upcoming psychological thriller, Crack. However, our sources revealed that before Crack, the Khiladi will have another release next year, which is Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
The film, which goes on floors in November 2016, will wrap up by January 2016. Though the makers are yet to officially announce the release date, sources close to the development reveal that the film will hit the big screen in late May/early June 2017.
In an interview to a leading daily, Neeraj Pandey confirmed that the film will go on floors by the end of this year. He was quoted saying,
"That film (Toilet) is not being directed by me. It is a script written by my team members - Siddharth and Garima. I just mentored them. The project is going on floors by the end of this year, and it's going to be directed by my editor."
The film is said to be a satire on PM Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan and reportedly, government associates are in constant touch with the writers to let out more details about the mission.
On the other hand, Neeraj Pandey's Crack will go on floors in March and Akshay will wrap up the film in one go, by April end.
