Dharma Productions head honcho welcomed his twins Yash and Roohi in 2017, named them after his parents Hiroo and Yash. They were born via a surrogate.
On Daughters' Day, Karan also wished Alia Bhatt with a sweet message. Sharing a throwback picture with the 'Student of the Year' star, he wrote, "My baby girl for life #happydaughtersday."
In 2019, Karan had spoken about being a single parent and said, "Being a single parent is really daunting and scary. Because I think it takes a mother and a father to complete the upbringing of a child. In many ways you could say that having Yash and Roohi is full of love but it is also a selfish decision. It is because I want that love for myself. There was a large empty space in my life that needed to be filled by children.”
He had shared that he is co-parenting Yash and Roohi with his mom.
On the work front, Karan Johar is directing 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani', starring actors Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. The movie will release in 2022.
