Vicky Donor shaped me as an actor: Ayushmann Khurrana

As the film marks its eight anniversary tomorrow, the actor reminiscences about the journey

Published: 19th April 2020

Vicky Donor will always remain close to actor Ayushmann Khurrana's heart as it was his first film.

Released in 2012, the Shoojit Sircar directorial presented a light-hearted take on the taboo attached to sperm donation and artificial insemination. And according to Ayushmann, the film, which made him a household name, completely shaped him as an actor.

Reminiscing about the movie and his journey, Ayushmann said, "I will be forever thankful to Shootjit da for choosing me for Vicky Donor. He gave wind beneath my wings, told an outsider like me that it was ok for me to dream, it was ok for me to chase my passion of being a Hindi film hero." 

"Vicky Donor was a role of a lifetime for me and there are so many lovely memories attached to the film. This taboo-breaking film shaped me as an actor and told people about my intent to do different and quirky cinema that will stand out for its content," he added. 

Also, as the film marks its eight anniversary on Monday, Ayushmann will conduct a Twitter chat with Sircar.

"I have planned something really special. Shoojit da and I will go live on our social media and discuss the process of how Vicky Donor was conceptualised," the actor said. "We will also discuss several unheard anecdotes from the film's shooting schedule. It will be like a trip down memory lane for us and I'm looking forward to it," he added.
