John gets busy with Housefull 2 and Vicky Donor

While mystery continues to shroud around ‘Is he or is he not married’, there is a lot more in John Abraham‘s life that will is bound to keep him busy for months to come. While he would be returning to the big screen with Housefull 2 in two months from now, he would also be debuting as a producer in the very next week with Vicky Donor, hence seeing a double bill of sorts.


“Yes, Housefull 2 releases on 5th April while Vicky Donor arrives on the next Friday. John would be ultra busy for next two months since both films are really important to him. After a modest last year where his Force and Desi Boyz did reasonably well, he now has to up the ante with Housefull 2 since it is his biggest film till date. On the other hand, he has put his own money into Vicky Donor and hence can’t afford to lose concentration there”, informs a close associate.


While a lot has been spoken and written about Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2, not many are aware that Vicky Donor is a film which deals with the subject of sperm donation. As per director Shoojit Sircar though, ‘The film is not a serious take on the subject but a light-hearted look at the taboo attached to infertility and artificial insemination’.


The film marks the debut of VJ Ayushmaan Khurrana, a popular face on TV. Yami Gautam, an upcoming actress who has also worked in a Telugu, Malayalam and a Kannada film each, also makes her Bollywood debut here. Surprisingly, John won’t be making coming in front of the camera for the film despite being a producer here.


“What is all the more surprising though is the fact that John decided to release Vicky Donor exactly a week after his own Housefull 2“, wonders a trade source, “He may be probably having some real good reasons to do that. However, do expect some hectic times ahead for him since now he would now have to promote both films almost simultaneously.”


As per insiders though, John has spared no expense in giving this film an international look by ensuring good production value. Also, despite a not-so-commercial-sounding theme, John promises that Vicky Donor would be – in his own words – ‘breakthrough commercial cinema’.
