TOI confirms the news and quotes BMC executive health officer Dr Padmaja Keskar saying that the birth registrations were done on Friday. The names of the kids have been registered with BMC. A blind item carried by SpotboyE reports the same and calls Karan a filmmaker whose “life has always been matter of discussion and conjecture,” – and let us not forget that ‘conjecture’ is KJo’s favourite word. Other clues also point at Karan Johar. According to the report on TOI, the birth registration details of the babies do not mention the mother’s name.
