Toilet Ek Prem Katha is the story of Keshav (Akshay Kumar) who wants to get married. His family marries him to a buffalo because he is a maanglik. Later, he finds the love of his life, Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) and marries her. After marriage, Jaya is asked to join the lota party by the other women of the house. She refuses to go out in open and asks Keshav to construct a toilet in the house. The difficulty arises when Keshav tries to fight against the village and make a toilet in his house. And the battle against open defecation begins. Akshay is seen going to ministers and court asking for help to build a toilet in the village.
