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:
Tweeps, @akshaykumar ji & I have made a small contribution to our dear city. We chose to add privately to the efforts of the BMC by making a public toilet in Juhu, handed it over to the BMC now. Small contribution but just the beginning! (1/2) pic.twitter.com/WYuEneAJRu

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.
