According to The Times of India, IVF clinics in Gujarat have been inundated with emails from educated young men offering to donate their sperm.
Fertility expert Dr Himanshu Bavishi told the paper: "The subject of sperm donation is no longer discussed in whispers. It is openly debated - an accepted option to help in a noble cause and earn some extra money."
IVF specialist Dr Naina Patel said that calls from young people wishing to donate sperm were few and far between until Vicky Donor opened in cinemas.
"In the past two weeks, we have received innumerable [e]mails and calls from educated youths," she said.
Produced by John Abraham and starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam, Vicky Donor is a romantic comedy based around the central theme of sperm donation.
The film has been an unexpected hit, earning box office takings of 13 crores in its opening weekend.
Abraham has said he would consider donating his sperm for altruistic reasons.
