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

Nihalani on Thursday night watched the trailer of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and also shared a photograph of himself with Akshay. "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 replied by saying: "Thank you so much Pahlaj ji, that's very kind of you."

Nihalani also lauded the choice of films Akshay does. "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.
