While at BookASmile, we work towards providing Entertainment led experiences to lesser fortunate sections of the society, with films like ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’, we are also able to do our bit in creating awareness and educating people regarding issues that matter the most. The film will touch upon ‘Swachh Bharat’ mission and we believe that it will be able to inspire people to take issues related to sanitation and hygiene more seriously. We are delighted to organise screenings for over 16500 kids and special adults and hope that they will not just get entertained through this outing, but also take home with them the learnings from the film.”
