A few months earlier, Twinkle Khanna had posted a picture on twitter showing open defecation at Juhu beach.

Now people living in the area and visitors will be able to access a bio-toilet installed with the help of funds donated by Akshay Kumar and Yuva Sena leader, Aditya Thackeray.

He tweeted saying:

The toilet has six seats, three each for men and women, and a separate row of urinals. The toilets which cost around Rs 10 lakh to make been handed over to the BMC

Akshay had earlier highlighted the problem of open defecation, especially in rural areas in his movie, Toilet Ek Prem Katha, which had won critical acclaim.
