My son looks exactly like me, says dad Tusshar Kapoor


Tusshar Kapoor has become a single father to his son who is born via surrogacy. He named his bundle of joy, Laksshya. Tusshar is over the moon to have his child.

The actor reveals how his son looks like, "My son looks exactly like me. So, it makes me very, very happy and I don't have words to express how excited or how joyous I am," said a thrilled Tusshar.

Tusshar explained how and why he took the step. "I will be turning 40 in a few months. I feel that I am in the right stage of my life to be a single parent," he said.

His inspiration was filmmaker Prakash Jha. "I met Prakash Sir on a flight and he told me this is a way also to have a family," Tusshar said.

Tusshar has been prepping for parenthood for the past nine months and his family will now be helping him be a hands-on dad. "I am the caretaker, me and my parents and Ekta. I have been learning for the last nine months," said Tusshar.

"I am thrilled to be a father! The paternal instincts in me have been overpowering my heart and mind for some time now. Therefore, I am thrilled beyond words to have Laksshya, now the greatest source of joy in my life," Tusshar said earlier in a statement.

A joint statement from Laksshya's grandparents Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor read: "We could not be more excited to be grandparents to Laksshya, and are completely supportive of Tusshar's decision. This is certainly a tremendous blessing, and an exciting time in our lives. Tusshar is a wonderful son, and he has proven with responsibility, independence, and kindness that he will be a great father to Laksshya."
