Javed Akhtar pens lovely poems as gifts for Karan Johar’s twins


Karan Johar’s friends and industry colleagues have been visiting his home to bless his twins Yash and Roohi and showering them with gifts. But it was Javed Akhtar’s unique and ‘special’ gifts for Karan’s bundles of joy that touched the filmmaker’s heart.

The noted lyricist and screenwriter penned two lovely poems for the new-borns, explaining the meaning of their names Yash and Roohi. It is indeed something that the kids will cherish when the grow up.

Proud daddy Karan too was so overwhelmed with the unique presents that he shared the beautifully framed poems on Twitter and wrote, “Thank you Javedsaab....this will always remain truly special to us....we love you lots!! Yash....Roohi... and me..... Thank you so much Javedsaab @Javedakhtarjadu ....”

In a separate tweet, the ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ director also thanked Javed Akhtar’s wife, acclaimed actress Shabana Azmi. “Mom and I are extremely touched with your warm and wonderful present...thank you @AzmiShabana @Javedakhtarjadu ...big love and respect...,” he wrote.

Karan became a single dad through surrogacy in February this year and named them after his parents, father Yash Johar and mom Hiroo. His babies were born premature and had to remain in hospital for some time before he brought them home towards the end of March.

Karan is enjoying his fatherhood and spending most of his time with his little ones and ensuring their perfect care.
