Vipin Jain is an Indian producer. He is the co-founder of the Ikkon Pictures India Private Limited. Before he got into the cinema world, Vipin ran a successful business in Infrastructure and Development and also CNG conversion kits in New Delhi. He was a businessman with the intention of milking the opportunity available to him to make money through investing in films.

His friend and business acquaintance, Krishan Chaudhary, first suggested the idea of breaking into movies and offered him the partnership in Ikkon Pvt. Ltd. He obliged and together they established Ikkon Films. Vipin Jain made a mark in the film industry with his production house creating the supernatural comedy “Bhoot Unkle” in the year 2006. The film starred Jackie Shroff and an entourage of child actors, who made this film a small scale hit. The director of the picture was Mukesh Saigal, brother of Baba Sehgal, the singer.

The film about a friendly ghost enthralled mostly the children as an audience. After the moderate success of “Bhoot Unkle,” Vipin and Krishan also took on a sequel “Bhoot Unkle 2” but released it on Television for a wider coverage and greater distribution. In the year 2010, the duo once again partnered to produce the Bollywood horror flick “ Rokkk” that starred Udita Goswami, Sachin Khedekar, and Tanushree Dutta.

Rajesh Ranshinge took his place in the director’s chair for this movie. The film bombed at the Box Office. Their next venture “ Right Yaaa Wrong” (2010) met with a tepid response. It had Sunny Deol, Konkona Sen Sharma and Irrfan Khan in the lead roles and a majority of the film got shot at Film City. Their primary role was of film distribution. In the same year, they released their project “Will You Marry Me?”.

Bangkok, Dubai, and Mumbai were the prime locations for the shooting and casting Rajeev Khandelwal was a unanimous decision by Krishan and Vipin. Aditya Dutta, who had impressed him with his “Aashiq Banaya Aapne” directed this film. Despite an attempt to make the movie hilarious and involving four music directors, “Will You Marry Me?” too flopped massively. Vipin had been arrested on charges of extortion during the production of “ Afra Tafri”.

A spat between the other producer, Prashant Sharma, whose company Goose Bumps had tied up with Ikkon, caused him to take such a measure against Vipin. The arrest caused a setback to the release of the movie even though it is almost complete, but is slated to release in 2018 and has Mugdha Godse, Suniel Shetty and ‘ Govinda’ acting in it. The other project “Johnny Joker” was shelved. Vipin claims his life as a producer to be a learning experience; he enjoys the hard work that comes with it.
