Director : Shoojit Sircar
Vicky Donor Trivia
After directing Yahaan in 2005, Soojit Sircar spent 3 years working on the film Shoebite with lead actor Amitabh Bachchan. The film was complete but had not released till 2011, which led Soojit Sircar to move ahead and direct a comedy Vicky Donor.
Soojit Sircar had already casted Ayushumann Khurrana before John Abraham stepped in to produce the film. A common friend, Ram Mirchandani of Eros International asked Soojit to narrate the film to John who was looking out for projects and on hearing the narration, John decided to start his own production company and launch Vicky Donor under his banner.
Director Soojit Sircar wanted to cast a new actor for the lead role for Vicky Donor as big actors would be apprehensive about the subject and if convinced, Soojit would have to wait for their dates. Hence we got Ayushmann Khurrana on board for the lead role. Ayushumann was also apprehensive when he head the story but on reading the script he was convinced and decided to go ahead with the project.
Lead actor Ayushmann Khurrana who stars in John Abraham's Vicky Donor also composed one track and sang too. The song was written by Ayushumann in 2003 along with his friend Rochak Kolhi and is Punjabi Love Ballad.
