NEW DELHI: Contrary to reports, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar says his upcoming film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ has been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with three cuts.

Speaking at the press conference of the flick here, the ‘Rustom’ star said, “I read news that the film has got eight or nine cuts from the censor board, but this is wrong. We have got three verbal cuts in the film.” 

When asked if they are planning a special screening of the film for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose Swachh Bharat Abhiyan forms the crux of ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,’ Akshay said, “I would love to show it to him, but I am sure he has lots to do for our country rather than just watching this film. But yes, we’d love to show it to him.”

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the movie also features Bhumi Pednekar and Anupam Kher and is slated to hit the big screens on August 11.
