While mystery continues to shroud around ‘Is he or is he not married’, there is a lot more in John Abraham’s life that will is bound to keep him busy for months to come. While he would be returning to the big screen with Housefull 2 in two months from now, he would also be debuting as a producer in the very next week with Vicky Donor, hence seeing a double bill of sorts.
“Yes, Housefull 2 releases on 5th April while Vicky Donor arrives on the next Friday. John would be ultra busy for next two months since both films are really important to him. After a modest last year where his Force and Desi Boyz did reasonably well, he now has to up the ante with Housefull 2 since it is his biggest film till date. On the other hand, he has put his own money into Vicky Donor and hence can’t afford to lose concentration there”, informs a close associate.
While a lot has been spoken and written about Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2, not many are aware that Vicky Donor is a film which deals with the subject of sperm donation. As per director Shoojit Sircar though, ‘The film is not a serious take on the subject but a light-hearted look at the taboo attached to infertility and artificial insemination’.
The film marks the debut of VJ Ayushmaan Khurrana, a popular face on TV. Yami Gautam, an upcoming actress who has also worked in a Telugu, Malayalam and a Kannada film each, also makes her Bollywood debut here. Surprisingly, John More >

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.”
