Mumbai, March 8 Actor John Abraham is now focusing on promoting “Vicky Donor”, his first film as producer. The film speaks about sperm donation, which John said he truly believes in.
“I completely believe in sperm donation. It’s a topic that needs to be addressed, needs to be spoken. There are 50 percent more childless couples so it’s a topic that needs to be spoken,” John said during the first-look launch of “Vicky Donor” at Cinemax.
“I would donate my sperm for a social cause. There are industrialists, police officers, people from army donating sperm because they want to keep their sperm aside because they are not sure whether they will be back from their battle. I would definitely do it,” he said.
An Eros co-production with John’s banner JA Entertainment Production, “Vicky Donor” has been directed by Shoojit Sircar. It stars veejay Ayushyamann Khurrana in his debut role along with Annu Kapoor and Yami Gautam.
John said the script demanded fresh faces.
“When Shoojit showed me the script, it was very clear the script wanted new faces. His films are brilliant and beautiful. When you see the trailers, you will realise that we have made the best choice by casting them,” he said.
“When I read the script, I loved it. This was the best opportunity to enjoy being a producer. Besides, I believe in encouraging new talent. Ayushman and Yamini are sitting next to be but tomorrow they might get too busy with their projects. It’s always good to encourage new talent,” John said.
A confident John added: “I promise you as a producer the film will have super entertainment in it.”
“Vicky Donor” which has the debutantes in the lead will, however, see producer John doing a promotional song for the movie.
“There is a song where I will be there, and Bosco and Cezer will be choreographing it,” he said.
