Actor and former marketing professional John Abraham has finally got an opportunity to make the best use of his core skills through the promotions of his first production, Vicky Donor. The film that the actor prefers to terms as his ‘baby’ releases on May 11. The 39-year-old is proud of the fact that his first venture is not riding on his star power but will sell entirely because of the rich content.

The romantic comedy stars VJ-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam, and revolves around sperm donation and infertility, a controversial subject that John claims has been presented non-offensively.

John speaks...
On Vicky Donor,The subject is about sperm donation, which has been a taboo to discuss, but were not homosexuality and extra-marital affair a taboo too, before Dostana and Jism happened

Debut as a producer
My crew was shocked to see my limited involvement in the film, unlike other producers, who just ride their money on the film and cash in on their star power by acting in it

Turning director
That is the ultimate dream and is inevitable. Ron Howard, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood, George Clooney are the case in point and I will hopefully follow suit

Losing 10-15 kilos
I'm losing a lot of weight for Shootout at Wadala as looks, casting and performance are like the legs of a tripod stand - without one the other falls, so I need to perfect all three

Deepi-Taurani tiff
My dates for Ramesh Taurani's Race 2 have been changed. I've to redo some scenes as Deepika isn't doing the film. May all get sorted between them

On selling his film Vicky donor will definitely be presented to the masses but I'm not going to spend a bomb mindlessly by giving jacket ads to the newpapers as I've to save my studio's money.
