The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director announced the birth of his twins in 2017. They were born via surrogacy. Born prematurely, Yash and Roohi spent almost 50 days in the hospital. Karan had taken a long paternity leave to take care of his children.

Karan has named his son after his late father Yash Johar and Roohi’s name is derived by rearranging the letters of his mother Hiroo Johar’s name.

Speaking about being a parent, Karan had earlier said, “I am playing both mother and father in this dynamic, so I have a double role to play and for me, it’s even more daunting. I have told myself that I am not going to be a hysterical, hyper parent.”

But that doesn’t mean he is away from the production scene. He has at least nine projects lined up as producer. Starting with Raazi in May, 2018, his production ventures will hit theatres one by one till 2020.
