"Everybody in the country has been very accepting. That was a bit surprise for me because I thought there would be diverse views, some kind of 'oohs and ahas' about it, all kinds of opinion. But nothing of that sort happened," said Tusshar Kapoor
Laksshya Kapoor was born last week via In Vitro Fertilization or IVF and surrogacy. Tusshar Kapoor is a single father and revealed that he was inspired to parenthood by director Prakash Jha, who he met on a flight and was told that "this is a way also to have a family"
Tusshar, son of actor Jeetendra, has been prepping for parenthood and his family will be helping him be a hands-on dad. "I am the caretaker, me and my parents and Ekta. I have been learning for the last nine months," said Tusshar
"Congratulations my dearest Tusshar Kapoor, couldn't be more thrilled. Welcome to the world of parenting. Love & blessings to the new born," Riteish Deshmukh wrote on Twitter
"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," Tusshar said in a statement.
