Sixteen years after he tragically lost his son Shanu, 56-year-old actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik is a father again. The baby girl named Vanshika was born on July 15 through surrogacy.
To Mirror, a jubilant Satish said,”By God’s grace, my wife Shashi and I have been blessed with a daughter. It is the end of a long and painful wait for a child. It is a matter of unimaginable joy especially for my wife who had her heart set on another child ever since we lost our only son Shanu when he was just two-years-old.”
For Satish, he has rediscovered fatherhood after 16 years. “Ever since Vanshika came last month, my wife and I have become like first time parents – enjoying every movement of our baby, feeding her, changing her diapers.”
And for this miracle, Satish wants to thank Dr Hrishikesh Pai. “He’s not just one of the best IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) doctors in the world, but also a close friend. I thank him for urging me and my wife to take the IVF route to parenthood. We were unfortunate in having lost our only child. Our world had come crashing down. But thanks to the world of medical miracles, we’ve become parents again at an age when parenthood is considered impossible,”said Satish.

Mumbai: On December 1, actor Aamir Khan and his filmmaker-wife, Kiran Rao welcomed their first-born son—but with a classy difference. The couple, in an openness that is rare in the Indian society, announced that their son was born through surrogacy using the IVF (in-vitro fertilization) technique.
Their letter, which was released to the media on Monday, thanked miracles of science and read, “This baby is especially dear to us because he was born to us after a long wait and some difficulty.” The letter added that due to medical complications, “we were advised to have a baby through IVF-surrogacy, and we feel very grateful to the Almighty that all has gone well”.
The couple didn’t mention whether their son was born in Mumbai or outside. They underwent treatment with Dr Firuza Parikh, who heads Jaslok Hospital’s IVF department. On Monday, Dr Parikh told TOI, “This is an extremely happy moment for us. Kiran has gone through a lot and we are all excited for her. They underwent IVF-surrogacy treatment and they are the biological and genetic parents of the baby.” Family sources suggested that Kiran Rao (38), who suffered a miscarriage last year, had uterine medical problems that necessitated a surrogacy.
The couple married in December 2005. Aamir (46) has two other children from his first wife, Reena Dutta.
