Karan Johar, after Tusshar Kapoor, set an example by becoming one of the first Bollywood male celebrities to turn a single father last year. The multi-talented celebrity's love for his parents is well-known and he named his twins after them, Yash and Roohi. Not much was known or speculated before KJo announced the news of becoming a father via surrogacy in March 2017. And surprisingly, even all those he's close to, like his mother Hiroo Johar, Shah Rukh Khan or his 'students' Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra were clueless about the new step in his life.
And according to a new report, the filmmaker first shared the news with none other than Deepika Padukone. The revelation was apparently made when the actress made an appearance for the first episode of his chat show 'Koffee with Karan' where she arrived with Alia. KJo is reported to have said that he revealed the news to his 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' actress accidentally. However, she understood the filmmaker's feelings and promised to keep it a secret, claimed the report. Yash and Roohi have grown up today and from paparazzi tracking their every movement to their father himself sharing regular pictures and videos, the twins are no less than any celebrity.
On the professional front, Karan is backing multiple films currently. Some of the projects that will be hitting the theatres in the next few months are 'Kesari' starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra and the multi-starrer 'Kalank', featuring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. There's also 'Brahmastra' releasing next year and the action film again stars Alia, Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in lead roles.
KJo is also backing the Vikram Batra biopic with Sidharth in the lead too. He also switches back to direction after 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' with period drama 'Takht' which stars Ranveer Singh, Alia, Janhvi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar.
