Bhumi Pednekar’s impression in a critically acclaimed film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha was opposite a suspicion of open defecation and so is a actor in genuine life. She says it scares her to even consider about putting adult her garments and sitting in a center of nowhere and defecating.

According to Bhumi, women are a misfortune sufferers of India’s sanitation crisis.

“I don’t know a accurate figure, though there are reports that uncover that in a areas where there is an deficiency of spotless facilities, women mostly have to wait until dim to go to a toilet or to go to some removed area for defecation due to that incidents of rape and seduction have been witnessed,” Bhumi told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

“I can’t ever suppose putting adult my garments and sitting in a center of nowhere and defecating. It scares me that by doing this, my life could be in risk as anything can happen. But there are women who have been doing this for a prolonged time. Just suppose a risk that they are taking, it is shocking,” she added.

“If we review a customary of Indian open toilets with general sanitation facilities, trust me, we are distant behind. If we have to transport in India by road, it becomes so formidable to find a toilet in a good condition.

“Our film was not about augmenting a commission of toilets in a country, a categorical design was to change people’s mindset as there are areas in a nation where people find constructing a toilet during home polluted due to that family members have to go outward to defecate.

“Before doing a film, we never suspicion that sanitation could be a critical problem in a country, though we realised it is some-more grave than any other issue. “People have died due to bad sanitation, girls have forsaken out of schools due to miss of a toilet facility. Open defecation leads to a widespread of damaging diseases.”

Asked what’s indispensable a many to urge a sanitation condition in India, Bhumi said, “Awareness and preparation are a best ways to quarrel a bad sanitation. There are regions where there is an emanate of H2O predicament too. People of that segment don’t build toilets due to miss of accessibility of water, though there is a resolution to that too.”

“There are toilets that don’t even need water, composting loos are a best answer to toilet crisis. So, what is indispensable is educating people. And zero can solve a bad sanitation of a nation unless there is behavioural change in people,” Bhumi added
