What is it with celebrities and lockdown? They’re becoming multi-hyphenates by adding extra strings to their bows. K-Jo is one of them. To date, he’s made some of the most popular melodramas in Bollywood history, hosted the addictive celebrity chat show Koffee with Karan and now Karan Johar is putting the spotlight on a very special part of his life: his surrogate twins.
Karan became a single parent to Yash and Roohi back in 2017 and since then his filmmaking has taken a back seat. He’s swapped directing for penning an autobiography and taken time out to host Netflix dating show What The Love!, but his biggest achievement in recent years will now go down as writing The Big Thoughts of Little Luv.
The picture book for children is inspired by his experience of parenthood and the challenges of bringing up a boy and a girl. In a Tweet posted yesterday, he publically thanked Twinkle Khanna for connecting him with a publisher to make the book possible.
The illustrated story focuses on siblings Luv and Kusha as they explore gender and the different ways that boys and girls are treated, a topic that was also touched upon in Natkhat, a short film starring Vidya Balan.
