However, in the process of showering praise, did he take a dig at Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan's recent failures at ticket windows by comparing their film’s run at the box-office to ‘constipation’? As you know, the last two big films released in the last quarter are Salman’s Tubelight and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. Both bombed at the box-office.
Coming back to Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s box-office performance, trust Akshay Kumar to end the rough phase.
