VJ and TV anchor, Ayushmann Khurrana, will be another name on the list of video jockeys who have transitioned to the silver-screen. Reportedly, Ayushmann will debut in Shoorjit Sircar’s film, titled Vicky Donor. And just like his fellow VJ Purab did for Onir’s film, Ayushmann too will reportedly play a sperm donor.
A source told us, “Ayushman plays a Punjabi cricket player, who donates his sperm. He is in love with a Bengali girl, essayed by television actress Yami Gautam.”
When contacted, Ayushmann said, “I attended theatre workshops with Prof N K Sharma in Delhi to get that ‘Dilliwala’ feel. It wasn’t difficult, since I am from the North.”
Director Sircar told Mumbai Mirror, “Ayushmann and I have been meeting doctors and donors from Mumbai and Delhi, since 2009. Ayushmann has an immediate connect with the younger generation. For the part of Vicky, I wanted a face that was easily identifiable and yet unexposed in cinema.
Vicky Donor is not a serious take on the subject of sperm donation, but a lighthearted look at the taboo attached to infertility and artificial insemination.”
