'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' director Shree Narayan Singh says tweaks were made to the film after Akshay Kumar signed

Director Shree Narayan Singh said after Akshay Kumar signed on for his directorial 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', he along with the film's writers, made a little changes in the script. Singh, however, insists they have stayed true to the plot and have only done minimal changes just to add Akshay's style to the film.

"The kind of subject we were making if we would have made it on small level may be we would not be able to reach the wider audience. So we needed a known face for the film."

"We had not written the film keeping anyone in mind. But after Akshay came on board we tweaked the film a bit, just five-ten per cent. We changed things according to his aura and personality. But at the same time we did not add things to commercialise the film," Singh said.

Singh said the makers approached quite a few top actors for the social-drama but it did not work out. "Akshay came to know through a common person about this script and he heard it and said he wants to do it. After he came on board the film became bigger," he said.

Singh has earlier worked with Akshay on 'Special 26' and 'Baby', where he was an associate director. "There was a comfort zone with Akshay. He was very co- operative and he did his best. I never felt he was a star. He used to give suggestions and ideas."
