New Delhi: After receiving enthusiastic reviews from the critics and the audiences, ‘Vicky Donor’ has earned Rs.13.40 crore in the opening weekend. Director Shoojit Sircar says the film`s victory proves that the moviegoers have developed over the years.
‘Vicky Donor’ is an optimistic take on the taboo affixed to infertility, sperm donation and artificial insemination.
Sircar told that “I am happy with the kind of response `Vicky Donor` has got. While writing the script, me and my writers thought we will get a positive response from young boys and girls, but with the film becoming so popular among the masses, it feels great.”
He added that “I never thought my film will get a U/A certificate from censors. It came as a shock for me. The success of the film is the biggest example of audience getting mature. I personally feel that the audiences are very clever and they know what they want to see.”
The film was released Friday more than 600 screens worldwide. The film, which was made with two beginners Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam along with seasoned actor Annu Kapoor, has grossed more than Rs.11.40 crore in India and Rs.2 crore abroad.
