Mumbai: Model-turned-actor-turned producer John Abraham is really bold, both literally and otherwise. The hunk whose production ‘Vicky Donor’ is making headlines for it’s “out of the box theme” is flooded with offers to donate his sperm.
In an interview to a daily, John had admitted that he had no inhibitions donating his sperms for “philanthropic reasons” but that would certainly not be for “commercial gain”.
Talking to the daily, John showed his witty side and said, “The rate at which I was asked to donate sperms ... I will be the father of the nation! I can’t keep giving to every fertility corner or everyone around ... I got a call from every corner of the country after I agreed to do so.”
However, he does want to reserve his sperm for his life partner.
“If I have to donate sperms then I would like to donate it to my future wife,” he said.
Moreover he feels that a decision on something as sensitive as sperm donation cannot be made impulsively. It’s a matter where emotions are involved.
“It’s a subject that I hold closely to my heart and I feel very responsible when I talk about it as I am not a model, I am a role model. I can’t make a comment loosely in the case of an issue as sensitive as this. As much as it’s a sweet feeling (to donate sperm), it’s a dangerous precedent, as the concept of designer babies have started happening. So now you can start tailor-making your children the way you want them to be. It is a very emotional decision … these decisions cannot be taken lightly,” John said.
‘Vicky Donor’ stars VJ turned actor Ayushmann Khurrana and veteran Annu Kapoor is slated to release this Friday.
