The new draft Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill 2016, which makes commercial surrogacy illegal in India and passed today by the Union Cabinet, has sent the nation into a tizzy. Surrogacy has been a way of attaining the joys of parenthood to many who have been unable to achieve it for several reasons. And along with common people, some of our biggest Bollywood and Hollywood celebrities too have children through surrogacy.

AbRam was born to Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan through surrogacy in May 2012. SRK and Gauri are said to have decided to opt for surrogacy after being recommended to it by Sohail and Seema Khan, who themselves had their second child, Yohan, through surrogacy a year earlier.
