He was already one of Bollywoodís most prolific film-makers, owner of a respected production house and a dutiful son. But Karan Johar can also be called a doting daddy now! The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director has become father to twins Yash and Roohi via surrogacy, whom he has creatively named after his own parents.
Karan broke the big news over Twitter on Saturday, receiving congratulatory messages from the whoís who of Bollywood, including Priyanka Chopra, Siddharth Malhotra, Arjun Rampal, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan.
Ironically, the one person who did not react to Karanís announcement until Sunday night was Karanís dear friend Shah Rukh Khan. However, before anyone could jump to any conclusions, the actor Ė who was walking the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra with Shabana Azmi on Sunday, took the opportunity to explain why he hadnít said anything.
ďItís a very private moment. Please donít think I am being very cagey because I am not saying but itís just too private a moment,Ē Shah Rukh explained. ďI have had it myself. So letís respect that and of course, there is going to be celebration and happiness.Ē The Raees star was attending the event along with his Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi costar Anushka Sharma for the Mijwan Welfare Society.
As a close friend and mentor, Shah Rukh naturally wants Karanís life to be as good as it can be but not at the price of the latterís privacy. The superstar also expressed his views on women, praising Shabana Azmi for her dedication towards their progress in rural areas.
