Finally Tusshar Kapoor Reveals Why He went for Surrogacy Baby even before Marriage

Tusshar Kapoor is one of the most doting and caring dads of Bollywood. The actor became the father of a baby boy named Lakshya in June last year through surrogacy. The full-time dad shares a very deep bond with his son and Maks sure everything is best in the upbringing of his son and takes care of the most minute things. Though Tushar has been often ridiculed for his film failures, and his looks, last year the actor earned immense support and love as he made headlines by becoming a single father through surrogacy.
“ I was amazed. I did not expect this kind of immediate acceptance. It’s overwhelming,” says Kapoor. Other than Tushar  Kapoor , Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Farah Khan and Sohail Khan have also become parents via surrogacy earlier.

In Hollywood, Michael Jackson, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Neil Patrick Harris have availed of surrogacy to expand their families. Tushar says he got the idea by director Prakash Jha on a flight. “Two years ago, I was frustrated. I always wanted to be a dad. but I was not married, and wasn’t ‘settling down’; I was kind of lost. And then I met Prakash Jha, who talked at length about surrogacy.

Tushar said, ‘It’s not the end of the road for you; unmarried people can also have children.’ He introduced me to Dr. Firuza Parikh, who handheld me through the whole process,”. What followed was intense research and preparations for the impending arrival of the baby. While Kapoor himself was ready, his parents were apprehensive. “Once the decision was made, the process was underway, and the date of Laksshya’s birth came closer, there were concerns. I did wonder how people would react to this? Is this too out of the box? Will people attack me? But given the overwhelming support and encouragement that we got, I am glad. This really shows how Indians are actually very liberal.”

Kapoor feels he would not have been able to do it five years ago. Once the baby arrived, Kapoor’s parents Jeetendra and Shobha even released a statement voicing their support and encouragement. Sister Ekta took to Twitter and welcomed the new addition to the family. The film fraternity including Karan Johar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh and Farah Khan took to social media to extend their congratulations.

In a country like ours where the birth of a child is celebrated, but pregnancy is still something that is hushed up, he found it heartwarming to see such universal acceptance of surrogacy. “When I was going through the process, privacy was a key concern for me, which thankfully the doctors understood. But once the baby came, it was a conscious decision to get the news out. I wanted everyone to know that I had become a father. And I have not faced any stigma or judgments for availing surrogacy. I even took Laksshya to the film sets and the cast and crew went out of their way to accommodate us,” says Kapoor, whose next release Golmaal Again is slated to hit theaters this November.
The Kapoor family recently celebrated Lakshya’s birthday this year, as he turned one year old. The event was star-studded and saw the presence of many celebs and celeb kids, including Tainui Ali Khan, Son of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan. A very adorable picture of Lakshya with grandpa Jitendra from the occasion has also gone very viral.
