VJ-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana who makes his Bollywood debut with JA Entertainment’s quirky comedy Vicky Donor is all praise for producer John Abraham –
Known to be a thorough professional, John Abraham went ahead to shoot for a special song for his home production Vicky Donor, in spite of suffering from a hairline fracture. And if that wasn’t all, the actor-producer also stayed back patiently shooting through 26 retakes of the song till the wee hours of the morning till Ayushmann got his steps right.
Says a source “The shoot of the song was expected to wrap up by 1.30 am but went on till 5 in the morning. Ayushmann was nervous sharing screen space with John and was taking time to get his steps right but John was very patient and helped Ayushmann despite nursing an injured knee. It was only after 26 retakes that the song was successfully canned”.
Confirms Ayushmann, “John was very supportive and was helping me boost up my energy. He had an injured leg but he still went on shooting till about 5 in the morning! He totally backed me up.”
Produced by John Abraham, Eros International’s contemporary comedy Vicky Donor directed by Shoojit Sircar , takes a light hearted look at the taboo attached to infertility and artificial insemination. Vicky Donor scheduled to release on April 20th,2012.
