Additionally, Tusshar also spoke about his mother Shobha Kapoor’s reaction to the same. He revealed, “She was a bit surprised. She was a bit shocked. She said that they are with me in the decision if I am ready to take the responsibility. Mom added, as grandparents Dad and she will help me but it’s me who has to be clear on this matter.
Meanwhile, like Tusshar Kapoor, his sister Ekta Kapoor also welcomed her son Ravie Kapoor on January 27, 2019. Tusshar revealed that his sister had called his decision to become a single parent, extremely gutsy. On this, the actor said, “She didn’t say it in the sense that I have done something shocking. After Laksshya was born and I was about to announce, she said that my decision would show a way to others. That’s the context in which she said that I have guts. Many people want to become single parents but they are scared. But no, I didn’t do it with any intention of breaking any path or becoming a trail-blazer.”
On the work front, Tusshar Kapoor turned author with his book ‘Bachelor Dad.’ While sharing the same with the world, he had stated, “I WROTE A BOOK! Becoming a father has been one of the most cherished moments of my life and my first book, Bachelor Dad, talks about how I took a slightly unconventional road to fatherhood. Furthermore, Tusshar disclosed, “I’ve been lucky in that I’ve had the support of some amazing people on this journey. However, my decision to become a single father also raised several questions which I have tried to address on various media platforms. But, the message has often been lost in translation. Perhaps that’s why I’m feeling joyous now. This is the major objective to write this book was to share an honest picture about my life, and that will finally be fulfilled.”
