People like to see commercial films. I consider myself lucky, who gets the opportunity to do commercial cinema and give people social messages in a very different way, "Akshay said.
"I am very proud to say that my film (Ek Prem Katha Toilet) has been displayed in every village by this government. I also want the government to show my film, Padman. Talking about pads is the subject of the biggest taboo, but I will make sure Padman is also seen by everyone, "he added while speaking at the World Toilet Summit at the World Toilet Day.
