Toilet – Ek Prem Katha traces the love story between ‘jugadbaaz’ Keshav (Akshay Kumar) and progressive girl Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar), set in two villages near Mathura.

TEPK is a satirical take on a battle against the age old tradition of open defecation in the country. From the panchayat to the sanitation department, from the role of the government to the superstitions of the villagers, from scams to the ethos, from first love to a matured romance, TEPK is Keshav's journey where a common man stands up for a cause and eventually changes the mindsets.
