Annu Kapooor Vicky Donor interview News
VICKY DONOR movie review: A product of fertile sperm…errr.. brains!
If you haven’t heard about a profession in which all you have to do is donate sperm and get paid for it, then you aren’t alone. As Ayushmann Khurrana (Vicky Arora) settles for a job that helps him make a lot more than just make ends meet by donating his highly fertile semen, people around him roll their eyes in surprise and cringe in horror by just hearing the word ‘sperm’
Of course, this represents our parochial mindset to a certain extent, treating an innocuous and selfless job like some terrible taboo. But what’s really good about Vicky Donor is the fact that it conveys a serious message without sermonising, which is why we thought it would be perfectly apt to label VD as a light-hearted commercial satire that conveys a message in a subtle manner by lacing a random concept like sperm donation with a humorous treatment and copious amounts of hard-hitting punches and one-liners.

Annu Kapoor: ‘Vicky Donor’ is a fearless film
A light-hearted take on sperm donation, Vicky Donor is not a serious film though at the core it deals with taboo topics like infertility and masturbation – which we fear to discuss openly, says Annu Kapoor
“If a man wants to donate his sperm, he must ejaculate without sexual intercourse, right? So even before infertility and artificial insemination, we are discussing masturbation here, aren’t we?,” asks Annu Kapoor, who will be seen playing sexologist Dr Chaddha in the new John Abraham production, Vicky Donor. “Self-pleasure is a normal thing. Why then are we Indians afraid to talk about something that is very natural, something we are born with? We are raising all these questions in Vicky Donor and our take on these taboo subjects is tongue-in-cheek,” says the veteran actor as he sets the tone of this interview. Click here to read more
