Several actors and filmmakers also expressed their interest in watching Toilet Ek Prem Katha.

Divyendu Sharma, Sudhir Pandey, Shubha Khote and Anupam Kher also feature in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha that is inspired by a real life story of a woman who left her husband days after their wedding after finding out that his home has no toilet. The husband fights social stigma and crosses several hurdles to get a toilet built for his wife and get her to return home.
