Although Karan Johar has recently taken the decision to step into fatherhood by adopting a kid, these Bollywood celebrities have broken societal expectations long back by adopting kids instead of opting for the biological way. Let’s take a look at these talented celebrities who are also wonderful parents.
1. Sushmita Sen
Much before Bollywood jumped into the adoption bandwagon, Sushmita had adopted her daughter Renee. As a single mother, she faced enough scrutiny back then, but that didn’t stop her from adopting her daughter Alisah again in 2009.
2. Raveena Tandon
Another heroine who broke the tabloids by adopting kids at the very young age of 21 was Ravenna Tandon. Her 2 adopted baby girls – Pooja and Chhaya are both grown up women now.
