Actor Tusshar Kapoor is now a proud father of a baby boy whom he has named Laksshya. The interesting part is that, Tusshar, who is unmarried and single, has been blessed with child with IFV technology, setting a trend for single individuals who wish to experience parenthood.
Tusshar who had always hinted to his friends that he wanted to be a father through surrogacy before he turned 40.
“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,” he said.
Lakssya is the first grandchild to Tusshar’s parents, the legendary Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor who seem to believe that it’s the best blessing the could receive.
“We could not be more excited to be grandparents to Laksshya, and are completely supportive of Tusshar’s decision,” beamed the couple.
Apparently, it was filmmaker Prakash Jha who had inspired Tusshar to consider IVF technology as he chanced upon him in a flight to the Tirupathi temple last year.
“Last year, I went to Tirupati temple. I happened to meet director Prakash Jha. We were in the same flight. He told me about this procedure (IVF) and how one could be a single parent using the same. He also introduced me to a family who had used surrogacy to have a baby. I felt inspired and decided to go in for the same,” said Tusshar.
As the news broke today, Twitter was more than generous in congratulating Tusshar on this auspicious moment of his life.
