After Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Shah Rukh Khan, and the rest of the film industry went ga ga over Karan Johar's children, it was the turn of poet Javed Akhtar to present the kids with something special. The poet and scriptwriter penned two beautiful poems for Karan's children as a present for their housewarming. 

All of the film industry's bigwigs had descended at Karan's house to be introduced to the kids on 7 April. While the rest of the industry might have brought something special, Akhtar's poem are a personal touch that left Karan and even his mother Hiroo Johar deeply touched. 

Addressed to Roohi and Yash, the poems elaborate on the legacy of Hiroo and Yash Johar. To Roohi, Akhtar writes 'Tumko chupke se ik baat bataaoon, Apne naam ki zara talaashi jo tum logi, is mein chhupi ek ladki milegi….'

The poem is a hint at Roohi's name, which is an anagram of Karan's mother's name, Hiroo. 

In a similar vein, to Yash, Akhtar writes 'Nanhe munne Yash Johar, Kya tumhein pata hai tumko jo ye naam mila hai iska poora matlab kya hai?' The poem goes on to elaborate the charming, gentlemanly nature of the late Yash Johar. 

Needless to say, both Karan and Hiroo, were deeply touched by the gesture. Even director Kunal Kohli found it to be an amazing gift. 

Poets always have the gift of words, they say.
