On a Sunday morning, the Bollywood industry woke up to ecstatic news — Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar opted for surrogacy and became a single father. Karan Johar has had twins — Roohi and Yash.

And we are as happy as the fraternity is in hearing the news! Karan Johar (44) tweeted yesterday introducing the children to the world:

According to media reports, Karan chose the same hospital where one of his best friends Shah Rukh Khan also had his third child AbRam through surrogacy. Karan’s kids were born last month in Mumbai’s Masrani Hospital.

Hearing the news, Shah Rukh Khan expressed a lot of joy and heartily congratulated the new father. He said, “It’s a personal moment. Let’s respect the privacy. Of course we all are very happy,” at the Mijwan Summer 2017 fashion show, TOI reports.

The boy is named after Mr Johar’s father Yash Johar, who was one of the most celebrated filmmakers of Bollywood, and who died in 2004. The baby girl’s name is rearranged from his mother’s name Hiroo.

Karan has promised to put his children above all else and has mentioned that his “most caring and supportive” mother will be there for the children along with his “friends who are family”.

The bold filmmaker is already adored by many for his openness about his sexuality. In fact, he is probably the first celeb from the Bollywood industry who has openly accepted and voiced his sexuality.

Johar had spoken about his deep desire of becoming a father  at the launch of his memoir – ‘An Unsuitable Boy’ in January.

Let’s round up who said what from the film fraternity:

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, who co-star in Karan’s latest production ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and since the film ‘Student of the Year’’s have become like children to him, tweeted:

Other celebs who showered love are:

“Congratulations to Karan. He, in an interview once, said that he has a nurturing quality in him. He wants to start a family. He has always been a guy who is owned by his heart. I am very happy Karan Johar is now a parent and I am sure his children will grow up to be amazing people.” Sushmita Sen said.

She also added, “Every child is different, every parent is different. Just remember, you are here to nurture their talents and to give them the best possible life ever.”

Kiran Rao, who also had her first-born, Azad, with husband Aamir Khan, via surrogacy, said, “That’s just wonderful. He deserves every happiness that life can give him. I am so happy to hear this news.”
