Filmmaker Karan Johar took his twins, Yash and Roohi, home on Wednesday afternoon. The babies, who were born prematurely on February 7, were kept under observation in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of a suburban hospital in Mumbai. The proud father finally took his babies home after the babies spent seven weeks under the doctors' care. The filmmaker was seen cradling one of the babies in his arms as he made his way to the car, while the other baby was carried by a woman accompanying Karan.
KJo had recently shared a moving post about how he was "terrified" on learning that his kids were born prematurely and were worryingly underweight. He added that all he wanted to do was "hold them and protect them". The 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' director had specially written about his experience so that parents who have premature babies can derive strength from his story. He also aimed to create awareness around the care that has to be given to premature babies.
While the baby boy Yash has been named after his late father Yash Johar, the baby girl Roohi's name comes from a rearrangement of Karan's mother Hiroo Johar.
