So adorable, isn’t it? As per reports, Karan will host a star-studded bash today for Yash and Roohi’s second birthday at a plush Mumbai restaurant. The probable invitees of the birthday bash will have Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan’s son Taimur, Shahid Kapoor-Mira Rajput Kapoor’s daughter Misha, Rani Mukerji-Aditya Chopra’s daughter Adira, Soha Ali Khan and Kuna Kemmu’s daughter Inaaya, Tusshar’s son Laksshya and Aayush Sharma-Arpita Khan Sharma’s son Ahil.
When Karan had turned RJ for his radio show titled, Calling Karan, in one of the episodes titled, ‘It’s Complicated’, a caller had dialed in Karan to ask for some serious relationship advice. The caller shared about her rakhi brother-turned-boyfriend and the pressure she felt to break the news of their relationship to her parents. Giving an advice, Karan gave us peek-a-boo of a way-long-into-the-future-relationship. Hearing the problem, he had shared, “When a guy and a girl are together they immediately ask us to call each other brother or sister,” adding, “I wouldn’t mind if Taimur and Roohi want to be together, in the future.”
Karan had further revealed, “Yehi problem hai humare desh mein. Jab ladka ladki ek saath hote hai toh immediately bolte hai ‘bhaiyya bolo’, ‘didi bolo’... Arre, bilkul nahi yaar, (This is the problem with our country. When we see a boy and a girl together, we immediately tell them to call each other ‘brother’ and ‘sister’. This should never happen)”. Karan further stated that Roohi ‘s nanny asks her to call Taimur bhaiya and that Karan is completely against it. “I am like, ‘Kyun?’ 20 saal ke baad maybe Taimur aur Roohi saath rehna chahte hai. Kuch bhi ho sakta hai unka apna. Hum abhi se hi kyun daraar daal rahe hai uss raaste mein? (Why? 20 years from now they may want to be together. Why are we creating a wall between them already?)”, said a concerned Karan in the radio show. (Must Read: Juhi Parmar's Unique Way To Prepare Daughter Samairra On Dealing With Her Bitter Divorce)
Talking about fatherhood, Karan had once shared in an interview, “Fatherhood is proving to be a breathtaking roller coaster ride. When they were conceived, I was ecstatic, but I told myself I would be a responsible father and not a paranoid mother. Then came the complexities of premature birth. And the heartache of seeing them in the incubator. But I felt a strong sense of ownership. They were my lifelines. A lifelong dream come true. And I couldn’t wait to take them in my arms. When I did that for the first time, it was incredible.”
He had further added, "I knew this was the beginning of a different kind of love story. The start of the best phase of my life. Mothers go through these emotions. Fathers come in later. But I was there right from the start, with the other mothers in the ICU whose babies were also born weighing less than 1.5 kilos, their vital body parts, their tiny lungs and heart underdeveloped. And each time a baby crossed 2 kilos and the nurses put up a smiley sunshine face announcing this, I would celebrate with their mothers because I fully empathised with them.”
Post Yash and Roohi’s birth, Karan Johar had written an open-letter to them. The same could be read as, “You've changed my life completely, and I'm not complaining. I worry a lot more than I ever did — I have these strange thoughts about my insurance premium, my will, even the division of my assets. I stay awake some nights wondering who I can appoint your guardian if something happened to me." He further added, "I’ve already started imagining things like your first day at school, your first words and even your first acknowledgement of me. To tell you the truth, every single day I whisper ‘papa, papa, papa’ into your ears because I'm petrified that your first words will be in Malayalam (all our four nurses are from Kerala)!"
