Akshay Kumar is shooting for Toilet Ek Prem Katha in Nandgaon. Another religious leader has declared a reward of Rs 1 crore for the one who brings the tongue of the director. The director further promised that no religious sentiments will be hurt through this film. The director of the film, Narain Singh, addressed the media in Mathura on Tuesday and said all the rumours regarding the story line of the film will come to an end after the film releases. Being shot in Nandgaon at present, the film has raised the ire of religious leaders of the area. However, traditionally, no marriage is allowed between men and women of the two villages in deference to the ‘pious love’ of Lord Krishna and Radha. According to reports, the film allegedly shows a romance between a man and a woman hailing from Nandgaon and Barsana village. A sadhu in the area has now announced that he would pay Rs 1 crore to anyone who brings him the tongue of the film’s director, Narain Singh.
