Talking about Ayushmann Khurrana, his debut film Vicky Donor established him as a myth-breaking hero for the industry and audiences, who is willing to take risks and do films on content with taboo themes.
The film is a landmark moment in Indian cinema, as it has paved the way for the traditional country to raise a subject like sperm donation as well as a path for Ayushmann, who has now devised a genre of films that break his taboo.
Ayushmann says, I will always be grateful to Shoojit Da for choosing me for Vicky Donor. He blew my wings, told an outsider like me that it was okay for me to dream, it was right for me to run after my passion to become a Hindi film hero.
The versatile star further added that Vicky Donor is my life-long role for me and the film has many lovely memories attached to it. This tabu-breaking film shaped me as an actor and made people aware of my intention to do some different and quirky cinema with my content.
On its eighth anniversary, Ayushmann and director Shoojit Sircar plan to do something special. Under this, they will be chatting on their social media platform, in which they will discuss the journey of film making as well as share untold stories. They say, I have planned something really special.
Shoojit Da and I will go live on our social media and discuss how Shoojit Da conceived Vicky Donor. Along with this, we will also discuss many unheard stories of the film’s shooting schedule. It will be like going on a journey of memories for us and I am looking forward to it.
