Choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan says she is happy for Ekta Kapoor, who has become a mother of a baby boy and says that having children is a life changing event. Farah spoke to the media on the sidelines of Ekta’s epic ‘baby naming’ ceremony that was graced by many in Bollywood on Monday here.
“I am really very happy for both, Tusshar and Ekta. It is my kids’ birthdays as well, so I am here to give blessings,” said the 54-year-old Bollywood personality, who is married to Shirish Kunder and has triplet Czar, Diva and Anya. “It is a life changing event to have children and only when you have kids then only you realise what is important in life,” she added. Producer Ekta Kapoor became a mother with the help of surrogacy.
She has named her son after her father Jeetendra’s original name Ravi Kapoor, with an extra ‘E’ to it. “I am very happy. She (Ekta) has named him Ravie Kapoor, after her father (Jeetendra),” Farah said. “I loved the name, especially adding an extra ‘E’ to it, so it has a modern twist to it.” Jeetendra, his wife Shobha Kapoor, Tusshar and son Laksshya were there, apart from close friend Karan Johar, who came along with his mother Hiroo Johar. Karan too, had twins — Roohi and Yash — also via surrogacy in 2017.
Actor Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan also came to shower blessings on Ekta’s baby boy. Actress turned Union Minister Smriti Irani, Swara Bhasker, Shamita Shetty, Huma Qureshi, Mona Singh, Rakshanda Khan, Rhea Kapoor, Shabir Ahluvalia with wife Kanchi Kaul, Anita Hassanandani and husband Rohit, Surbhi Jyoti and many more were seen at the venue.
