These single fathers will prove that dads are just as nurturing as mothers.

Karan has been a father figure for many Bollywood celebrities, especially to Alia Bhatt. He has always expressed his desire to become a father. The joy of fatherhood knocked on his doors when twins, Roohi and Yash were born on February 7, 2017. They stayed under observation for weeks because of premature delivery but they finally came home to dad, Karan Johar. The proud father loves to share every moment of his little toddlers on his Instagram handle.
“It’s like a powerful switch has suddenly come on in my life, filling the emptiness in my personal space with new energy. I get teary-eyed just looking at them. It’s surreal to think of them as my daughter and son. It’s daunting even, but in a gorgeous way, when I wake up suddenly at night to remember that I have life breathing in the next room that I’m totally accountable for. My universe was Dad, Mom and films. But now there are Roohi and Yash. My two new friends.”
