Mumbai: Filmmaker Karan Johar, who revealed that his twins – daughter Roohi and son Yash – were born premature, has said that the first sight of his children was the “most surreal overwhelming feeling” of his life.
During a session at the India Today Conclave, Johar said: “When I saw them for the first time, I didn’t realise there were tears rolling down. I couldn’t believe they were two big pieces of me who are starring at me, who are innocent, vulnerable. It was the most surreal overwhelming emotion I have ever experienced.”
Karan said: “My need to have children was because of my sense of nurturing. I wanted to channelise the love within me. And there was deep amount of loneliness, I felt there was a vacuum that is now filled by my children.”
The 44-year-old director said: “I would be the mother of my children. I will be both mother and father. I will be more of a mother than father.”
Karan further said: “I cannot be dictating the choices to my children. I don’t want them to be filmmakers or run my company if they choose not to be. If they have other choices in life I will encourage that like my parents encouraged me to be a filmmaker.”
Meanwhile, when he was asked who will be the apt choice to play him if a biopic is made on him, Karan picked up Ranbir Kapoor.
