The makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha have released the first song from the film on June 28, 2017. The song, Hans Mat Pagli is a desi romantic one starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar. Akshay is following his lady love in the song. He clicks a few pictures of Bhoomi and stalks her everywhere without getting noticed by her.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Akshay reveals that “Once during the shoot, I was traveling by road with the film’s writers Siddharth-Garima, when I noticed that the truck ahead had the line ‘Hans Mat Pagli Pyaar Ho Jayega’. I felt that it went with the milieu of our film and asked the writers if they could pen the lyrics with this hook line. We have four desi romantic numbers in our movie.”
Talking about the song, Bhumi Pednekar,“By the time we finished shooting this song, the villagers had taken to it. There’s a certain innocent flirtiness to the lyrics, which you instantly connect with when you listen to the song. It also shows how romance in small towns and many cities begins. The songs have an old school melody that seems to be missing in soundtracks these days. Hans Mat Pagli has many beautiful moments. In fact, all the songs take the story forward. You’ll feel the emotions the lead characters go through during the course of their love story.”
The song, Hans Mat Pagli has been composed by Vickey Prasad. Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal have sung the song. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha deals with a common social issue of open defecation.
Akshay Kumar’s character live in a small village where there are no toilets and open defecation is the norm. Bhumi leaves Akshay after marriage because this comes as a shock to her and she stands up for her basic rights to sanitation. The story creates an awareness about the importance of toilets and sanitation in rural areas.
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, also features Anupam Kher and Divyendu Sharma. It releases on August 11, 2017.
