The actor is perhaps the first single dad in Bollywood to have had a child through IVF and surrogacy. Dancer, choreographer Sandeep Soparkar had few years back adopted a baby boy.
Dr Firuza Parikh, Director of IVF and Genetics at the Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, who led the treatment said, “I am impressed with Tusshar’s determination to be a father. He maintained a keen interest in the baby’s health at every stage. He will surely be a sensitive and nurturing parent.
