While we were busy being excited for the next Koffee With Karan episode, Karan Johar dropped some major new yesterday that left us all pleasantly shocked. He posted an announcement on Twitter informing his fans and followers that he is now a proud father as he welcomes twins into his life through surrogacy. Johar has named his children Yash, after his later father and Roohi, an anagram of his mother’s name. The director has often expressed his wish to become a father and in the statement he informs how this was a well thought out decision and he is aware of all the responsibilities that come along with being a parent. He also mentions how his mother is going to play a huge role in their upbringing. You can read the director’s official announcement below.
