After becoming a father for the first time to twins Yash and Roohi earlier this year, Karan Johar has opened up about fatherhood.
The popular filmmaker was asked if he wants to become a dad like his own father Yash Johar, he told DNA India, “I wish I can because he was amazing. I believe that the best father is a grandfather. So that is what my father was to me. He was a father who was also a grandfather. He was much older when he had me and that is what I will be. Because a grandparent has been through the process of being a father and reached a stage of maturity as a parent and he exercises that maturity in his nurturing.”
He also shed a light on having children through surrogacy. He said, “I was hesitant. But it wasn’t surrogacy that I was hesitant about; it was about me being a parent. I felt I wasn’t emotionally ready till I was. When I celebrated my 40th, I was like I really feel now is the time I should… I still wasn’t emotionally there. But there was one year… there was a phase when I was about 42 when I realised that now is the zone I feel I can be a parent. And I have the ability to nurture lives completely; I can take on this responsibility and I started all the work that I had to do.”
