9 years of Vicky Donor
The 2012 film ‘Vicky Donor’ has completed 9 years. The film starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam in the lead roles. This was the first film of both actors. In such a situation, he took a huge risk because the subject of this film was a little different from that of ordinary Bollywood films. The film was on subjects such as infertility and sperm donation which is considered taboo in Indian society.
Ayushmann had said in an interview, ‘I waited for the right script for four years to debut. ‘Vicky Donor’ was perfect for me and I immediately accepted the offer. I was not the subject hero in this film. I was sure this film would work.
Ayushmann said on the pressure on the debut film, “The pressure is on the established actors too, but I was nervous about my work, not about success.” The film was a hit, it is a joy, but even if it was a flop, I would not have lost. I am a theater artist, I read and write. It was always my dream to become an actor, but even if I were a super flop, I would have done something. ‘
In India Today Conclave South 2018, Yami said while talking about this film, it was a period when I was auditioning tremendously. At that time, I had the choice to make a typical Bollywood style film debut. I did everything on my own, no one was standing behind me at that time. When I auditioned for ‘Vicky Donor’, I asked the casting director what the film was about?
The casting director gave no reply and only smiled. When I got the film, I came to know about its subject. Parents had to tell this thing. My father asked me what the film was about and I gave him the entire script of the film. When my parents read the script, their reaction was – this is great. The film was a tremendous success and heightened the careers of Ayushmann and Yami.
