In a statement, Karan Johar has announced that he has become a proud father of twins Roohi and Yash through surrogacy. We are very happy for Karan, and wish him all the success as a single parent.
“This was an emotional yet well thought out decision which I have taken after considering all the responsibilities and duties that come with being a parent. In order to arrive at this decision, I have prepared myself mentally, physically, emotionally and logistically to ensure that my children get all the unconditional love, care and attention from me and mine,” Karan said in a statement he made on his Twitter handle.
Karan also added that his work will take a backseat as his children will become his priority. He has named the two children after his parents – Yash is his father’s name, while Roohi is an anagram of his mother’s name Hiroo.
The entire Bollywood community has come together to wish Karan Johar on this happy occasion. The likes of Varun Dhawan, Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Sushant Singh Rajput all tweeted out their wishes.
