Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani praised actor Akshay Kumar's upcoming release Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and opined that it should be made tax-free.

Nihalani, on Thursday night, shared a picture of himself with Akshay and declared on social media that he had watched the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha trailer.

"Watched trailer of Akshay Kumar's Toilet Ek Prem Katha. Based on true incidents, it promotes Swachh Bharat. Should be made tax free. Super hit," Nihalani captioned the image.

The National Award-winning actor, in turn, responded to Nihalani's gesture, saying, "Thank you so much Pahlaj ji, that's very kind of you."

Nihalani also lauded Akshay's choice of recent films and hailed him for championing causes of relevance in the society.

"Your choice of subjects have been extremely good. You are touching diverse social subjects to create positive change in society. Kudos and keep up," he wrote.

Akshay's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is, reportedly, inspired by the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

A love story with a satirical flavour, the movie has been directed by Shree Narayan Singh, produced by Aruna Bhatia, Plan C Studios and Abundantia, and presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment.

The project, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar, also marks Akshay and actor Anupam Kher's 20th film together. The movie is slated to hit the screens on August 11.
