Actor-producer Tusshar Kapoor is elated to announce his first book, “Bachelor Dad”.

As he says, “Becoming a father has been one of the most cherished moments of my life and my first book talks about how I took a slightly unconventional road to fatherhood. I’ve been lucky in that I’ve had the support of some amazing people on this journey. But my decision to become a single father also raised several questions that I have tried to address on various media platforms, though the message has often been lost in translation. Perhaps that is why I am feeling joyous now, because part of my objective to write this book was to share an honest picture about my life, and that will be finally fulfilled.”

Published by Penguin India, the book, which will be out next month, is, as he puts it, “My story in my voice. I hope when you read it, you walk away inspired to be a little more honest and a little more brave.”

The son of Jeetendra and brother to Ekta Kapoor, who made his debut two decades ago with the hit Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai, said on his social media, “I WROTE A BOOK!” He is India’s first celebrity to become a dad by surrogacy.

The 44 year-old Tusshar Kapoor’s son Laksshya was born through surrogacy June 1, 2016. The actor, whose sister Ekta has also opted for surrogacy, had stated last June that he would not share his son with anyone and therefore never opt for matrimony.
