In India surrogacy is allowed and legal, though a bill was passed to ban commercial surrogacy. There are two types of surrogacy- Commercial and Altruistic. Commercial surrogacy is when a remuneration is paid to the surrogate mother for the surrogacy and Altruistic surrogacy is when the surrogate mother is not paid anything except the medical charges.
Surrogacy is a foreign culture which has not been too famous in India. But, many celebrities in India have adopted this culture. Yesterday at midnight Priyanka Chopra announced that she and Nick Jonas, her husband, have brought a baby via surrogacy. Like them, many Hollywood and Bollywood actors have baby via surrogacy. The king of Bollywood , Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan were blessed with a baby boy in 2013 via surrogacy. The baby boy is Abram Khan.
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao also have a son via surrogacy. Sunny Leone, also has a baby via surrogacy. The culture of surrogacy has been spreading in India slowly. But in Hollywood there are tons of celebs and common people who have babies via surrogacy. The most prominent Hollywood celeb that comes to my mind while thinking about surrogacy is Kim Kardashian. She has a boy and a girl via Surrogacy.
Here is Priyanka’s post :
