Ac­tor Sana Khan (left) shot to fame when she ap­peared on the re­al­ity show, Bigg Boss Sea­son 6, in 2012. Her act­ing ca­reer took a big leap with the Sal­man Khanstar­rer, Jai Ho (2014), in which she played a piv­otal role. Now, all set to ap­pear in ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar’s up­com­ing film, Toi­let: Ek Prem Katha, she says, “When I heard the ti­tle for the first time, I im­me­di­ately un­der­stood that the sub­ject deals with san­i­ta­tion is­sues in our coun­try.” The ac­tor adds, “Swachh Bharat is not some­thing we should have to tell peo­ple about, it is a very sim­ple thing which ev­ery­one needs to un­der­stand them­selves.”

Though Sana only has a cameo in the film, she is con­tent with her role be­cause she was able to be a part of some­thing which of­fered the au­di­ence a mes­sage along with en­ter­tain­ment.

“When I got the call to be­come a part of the film, I was very happy, be­cause I was im­pressed with the con­cept. This is one of those rare films where even if you get 2-3 di­a­logues, your char­ac­ter is bound to make an im­pact. I was never both­ered by the length of the role. Noth­ing gets bet­ter than a big film like this spread­ing a mes­sage, which you can be sure will reach out to many,” says the 29-year-old ac­tor, who last starred in the film, Wa­jah Tum Ho (2016).
