John Abraham will produce Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor, but will not act in it.
Seems like after getting a big hit “Force”, John wants to start his career as a producer.
According to a source “John has been associated with producing a few commercials and has been contemplating branching out to feature films since a long time. For now there are two projects in the pipeline which John will be co-producing.”
The actor has said six months ago that he wants to become a producer with ad films first and then big screen projects.
His first project will be Vicky Donor which will be based on sperm donation in which actor actor is cast against Chitangada Singh.
Adds the source, “Though he is playing the lead in I, Me aur Main, he won’t be acting in Shoojit’s film. He loved the subject and immediately decided to support the project. However as far as acting is concerned, there is a lot on his plate.”
Interestingly, the first time he was inspired to support a project was in 2008 when he co-produced a documentary called Return of the Tigers by wildlife filmmaker and environmentalist Mike Pandey.
Says the source, “At that point, many industry folk were pretty surprised by his choice of not venturing into Bollywood production. However, he has been meeting various filmmakers to take his endeavour further.”
