Ask John why he didn't play Vicky, and the answer is simple enough. "The script demanded a fresh face. Had this film been made before "Jism" (his debut film), I would be right for it!" he laughs.
Why go with such a subject for his first production? John answers, "When an issue stirs up debate and not controversy, half the battle is won. I am sure that people will have a different take on sperm donation after watching this film."
Since announcing the venture, Abraham has been flooded with requests for sperm donation by female fans! "It's shocking! I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or be devastated!" says he. Is there a special someone he'd donate his sperm to? Very matter-of-factly comes the reply, "For one, a donor's identity is kept secret. And if I had to donate sperm, I'd do it for altruistic reasons." Then comes the cheeky afterthought, "If you see any kid that looks like me, you'll know the woman I've donated my sperm to!"
And what are his expectations from this film? Says the actor/producer, "I'm sure the movie will be critically appreciated and commercially accepted."
Produced by JA Entertainment & Eros International, in association with Rising Sun Films and Rampage Motion Pictures, "Vicky Donor" hits the theatres today.
