Karan johar has become a father to twins via surrogacy. The daughter has been named Roohi  and the son has been christened Yash.

Karan said “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.”

He further added that 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.

The 44-year-old filmmaker, who keeps travelling around the world, understands that having children would mean that “work, travels and social commitments would have to take a back seat”.

Karan also extended gratefulness to the surrogate who fulfilled my lifelong dream and provided a warm, loving and nurturing environment to my children before bringing them into this world.
