Alia, Priyanka, Varun, Farah Congratulate Karan Johar On Becoming A Father

It’s celebrations galore at Karan Johar’s home. And why not? He has become a proud father to twins – Roohi and Yash.

On the special day, Karan’s friends from Bollywood took to Twitter to congratulate the new papa. Take a look at the tweets:


Karan wanted to become a father for long. He has often spoken about it in his interviews and writings and finally, the day has arrived.

The son is named Yash, clearly after Karan's father Yash Johar and his mentor Yash Chopra- the two men who were closest to him. The daughter goes by the name Roohi- Karan's mother's name Hiroo smartly arranged.

The kids were born last month.  The names of the children were registered in BMC yesterday.

Karan sent out a statement to share his joy with fans and media.

“I am ecstatic to share with you all the two most wonderful additions to my life, my children and lifelines; Roohi and Yash.  I feel enormously blessed to be a parent to these pieces of my heart who were welcomed into this world with the help of the marvels of medical science,” the statement begins.

“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. I have submitted to the fact that my children are my world and priority.  My work, travels and social commitments would have to take a back seat and I am prepared for that. By the grace of God, I have the most caring and supportive mother who will be an integral part in the up-bringing of her grandchildren and of course, friends who are family,” the statement further reads.

“I am eternally grateful to the surrogate who has fulfilled my lifelong dream and provided a warm, loving and nurturing environment to my children before bringing them into this world. She will always remain in my prayers.

Finally, a big thank you to Dr. Jatin Shah for his guidance and support and for being like a family member through this wonderful and exciting journey,” concludes the statement.
