Some films leave us with a sense of having witnessed something that feels like our own; which strikes a chord. These are movies that leave a greater impact on the society. Some might help alter social mechanisms, while others might provide the system with an altogether new direction. Toilet Ek Prem Katha remains one such film. Apart from recognition from UN Environment, the Chandigarh state government has also decided to hold screenings of the film for the sarpanches (village headmen) to boost sanitation and tackle issues like open defecation.

The film’s trailer was previously shared and tweeted by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well.
