Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar recently became a proud father to twins – Yash and Roohi. However, the babies were born premature and were kept under close observation.
Today, Karan took to Twitter and wrote a message about the turmoil he underwent as the father and the care that needs to be given to premature babies.
He says, “…My children were born two months premature and worryingly underweight. Like any other person in this situation and on the brink of fatherhood, my heart sank.”
“Knowing that there were complications with my babies’ birth owing to how soon it was, I was terrified. All I wanted to do was hold them and protect them but they needed to be in the NICU. It was painful to see how tiny they were…” he goes on.
Addressing the issue of premature birth, he said, “As someone with a voice, I want to reach out. Million of preemies are born every year…but babies are resilient. With the right kind of care, they stand just as good a chance of survival as anybody else.”
KJo pours his heart out as he steps into this new phase of life. Here’s what he’s got to say.
