Karan Johar: I don’t want to be a paranoid parent like Bollywood’s leading actresses
Karan Johar, the head of Bollywood's one of the most successful production houses Dharma Productions, is now proud parents to babies Yash and Roohi through surrogacy.
Talking about his kids, Karan added, “I am just blessed by their presence every morning. They are the finest Dharma Productions, literally and otherwise. I am playing (the role of) mother and father, I have to the play double role, so it's even more daunting for me.”
While sharing his experience of being a ‘father and a mother’ so far, Karan said that he does not wish to be like leading actresses of Bollywood, who turn ‘paranoid’ once they become mothers.
He said, “I have decided that I am not going to be a hysterical, hyper parent because I see so many of them around me. And especially the leading actresses who become mothers, I think something happens to them, they become from leading actresses to paranoid parent. And I feel I don't want to be like them.”
However, Karan has found a partner-in-crime in ‘young mother’ Mira Rajput- Shahid Kapoor’s wife. They have, in fact, decided on the kind of equation their little munchkins are going to share in the future.
“I have a 23-year-old to call for parental advice and I feel awesome. Mira and I have chatted a lot. I have told her we have planned the best friendship of our children. Like my daughter and her daughter are going to be best friends and we are going to keep the option open with the son,” Karan said.
On the work front, Johar is the co-producer of Sidharth Malhotra- Sonakshi Sinha starrer film ‘Ittefaq- It Happened One Night)’,
It is a remake of 1969 thriller by the same name. The film is set to release on November 3.
