MUMBAI—Ahead of its Aug. 11 release, Akshay Kumar's much-awaited project "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha," has been leaked online and the actor has asked his fans to support him in the fight against piracy.
On July 21, few reports suggested that the movie featuring Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar was available online, and choreographer Remo D'Souza brought it to the notice of the filmmakers.
D'Souza confirmed the news to a leading daily and said that he had informed the producers about the same.
"The fight against piracy is critical, and it's reassuring to see the swift action taken by the Crime Branch on the unfortunate incident involving our film 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.’
"I would like to urge my friends, colleagues, fans, and audiences to please say no to piracy. Thank you all for support," Akshay Kumar, 49, posted on Twitter.
The movie, directed by Shree Narayan Singh, is based on a love story against the backdrop of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
