External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday took a jibe at Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan saying that even Bollywood stars with two or three children went for surrogacy.
Swaraj was speaking to media after the Union Cabinet cleared a draft Surrogacy Bill which aims to safeguard the rights of surrogate mothers and make parentage of such children legal.
