Playing a godfather of sorts, John Abraham who turns producer with JA Entertainment's VICKY DONOR is going all out to support new-comers Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam, who make their acting debut with the comedy that takes a light hearted look at the taboo attached to infertility and artificial insemination.
Donning his producer's hat to the T, John is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that he is present to fully support the film in spite of his hectic schedule. Says actor-producer John Abraham, ''Ayushmann and Yami are fantastic actors. I want to support them the same way I was supported when I had entered this industry.''
He further added, ''With VICKY DONOR I detach as an actor and have to be the captain of the ship. However, I will be doing a cameo in a song.''
Directed by Shoojit Sircar, VICKY DONOR marks the acting debut of VJ turned actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who plays a Punjabi cricket player cum sperm donor in love with a Bengali girl, played by television actress Yami Gautam.
John is also all praise for director Shoojit. Says John, ''Shoojit and I wanted to work together for a very long time. And we happened to come across this script. We both believed in it and decided to take it forward. There is nothing adult in the movie. No one wants to talk about such topics but Shoojit has handled it beautifully. As a producer I will make commercial films of different genres that are contemporary as audiences today are much smarter and expect more from a film.''
Produced by John Abraham, Eros International's contemporary comedy VICKY DONOR, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam release on April 20, 2012.
