It was always in Karan mind to become a father either by adoption or by surrogacy and he has fulfilled his dreams by becoming the single parent of twins through surrogacy last month.
Karan Johar has confirmed the news through a post on Twitter. Civic officials said that the births were registered with its public health department on Friday, reports Times of India.
The twins, a boy, Yash and a girl, Roohi were born at Masrani Hospital in Andheri (West) on 7 February. But it seems that Karan Johar hasn’t yet named his twins.
"The birth registrations were done on Friday," said BMC executive health officer Dr Padmaja Keskar.
Civic officials also confirm that the birth registration details listed Johar as the children's father, without mentioning the mother’s name.
The BMC officials also took the declaration of Dr Masrani and his infertility clinic about the birth to confirm the birth.

The Centre bans commercial surrogacy and payment for women taking up surrogacy. It also bans surrogacy for singles, foreigners and persons of Indian origin. Union health minister J P Nadda introduced the Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill in the Lok Sabha in November 2016.
In his recent autobiography, 'An Unsuitable Boy', Karan Johar had expressed a desire to adopt a child or have a surrogate child as his old-age insurance policy.
I don’t know what I’m going to do about it but I feel like I would like to be a parent. I don’t know how it’s going to happen but I do feel the need because I have plenty of love to offer and I’d like to take it forward. This feeling needs a release and requires a platform. And that platform could be by being a parentKaran Johar
