Karan Johar’s 45th birthday saw the Bollywood brigade in full attendance. The show-stoppers, however, were his twins Roohi and Yash who made their first social appearance.

“Everyone wanted to see them. Roohi and Yash were brought in for about ten minutes, and everyone at the party just wanted to click pictures with the adorable babies. But Karan was very clear: no pictures of the twins allowed, at least for the first year of their life,” said an actress invitee.

Recently, Karan’s mother accidentally sent a picture of the kids on WhatsApp. “Karan was hysterical with anxiety. He sent out frantic messages to the people who received the picture not to make it public. He is worried about the constant attention. In his close circle, he has seen how Shah Rukh Khan’s children, and now Kareena’s child are in the public eye right from birth. He wants a normal life for his kids,” says the friend.

“Karan tries to spend as much time as possible with his children. Even when he is in his office, he is always inquiring about their food, medicines, sleep, etc. from their nannies. Karan’s chief advisers on parenting are his dear pals, Farah Khan and Gauri Khan. They are on his speed dial addressing his parental anxiety,” quips our source.
