Karan Johar on parenting Yash & Roohi: They should learn and live with music I grew up on

Karan Johar was today snapped taking his little munchkins Yash and Roohi Johar home from a hospital in Mumbai. Yash and Roohi were born two months premature and therefore kept under observation in NICU. 
As he embraces parenthood, Karan Johar in an interview to a leading news agency revealed how he plans to raise his kids. Well, the filmmaker wants his kids Yash and Roohi to grow up listening to the same music he heard during his childhood. 
"My introduction to Hindi cinema was through Indian film music. When I made nursery for my kids, I made sure that I have music playing in that room all the time. I want them to grow up with music," said Karan.
Karan even made clear that he wants his kids to learn and live with the music he grew up listening and not the Coldplay version of nursery rhymes. 
"Someone told me that there is Coldplay version of nursery rhymes. But I said no. They should learn and live with the music I grew up on. Because they are my children and they have to love the music I love because they have to love me," said Johar.
Karan Johar who turned father in February via surrogacy names his kids after his parents. While he named his son Yash after his late father Yash Johar, Roohi is an anagram of his mother Hiroo Johar's name.
Karan Johar last directorial movie was Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Ranbir Kapoor , Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead roles.

Anonymous : The children need periods of silence too so they can fully appreciate beautiful music when its played. Twenty-four seven of anything, no matter how good it is, is too much. If he wants his children to love his songs, people close to them should sing the songs to them with feeling. Any song sung with intense emotion by a loved one will say so much more than a recording, even if it's performed poorly.

Anonymous : now that men like tusshar and karan have proven that men can make wonderful parents and we don't really need women to do childbearing or rearing since technology and men have taken their place, i wonder how mira's puppy comments are relevant here!

Anonymous : Yes, brilliant statement of 2017. We don't need women to do childbearing. Or rearing. Anyway I threw out my biology textbooks last year and can we talk, science is so over-rated.

Anonymous : i made the first comment. let me rephrase it. "wealthy men using technology " am sure the puppy comment is not relevant to karan since judgemental comments always target women! biology is not relevant in cases like these. nothing wrong. biology has never been relevant in india where women are blamed for not giving birth to sons
