Filmmaker Karan Johar said some of the Bollywood actresses are paranoid as parents and he doesn’t want to be like them.Johar recently became the father of twins through surrogacy. “I am playing (the role of) mother and father, I have to the play double role, so it’s even more daunting for me,” Karan told reporters recently.

“I have decided that I am not going to be a hysterical, hyper parent because I see so many of them around me. And especially the leading actresses who become mothers, I think something happens to them, they become from leading actresses to paranoid parent. And I feel I don’t want to be like them,” Karan said.

He was talking on the sidelines of the launch of noted nutritionist Pooja Makhija’s book Eat Delete Junior. Actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife Mira Rajput was also there at the event. Karan, 45, said he feels younger when he sees young mothers like Mira and it’s refreshing to be around her.

“I have a 23-year-old to call for parental advice and I feel amazing. Mira and I have chatted a lot. I have told her we have planned the best friendship of our children. Like my daughter and her daughter are going to be best friends and we are going to keep the option open with the son,” he said. In March this year, Karan had announced the birth of his twins - a boy and a girl - through surrogacy.
