Actor Swwapnil Joshi aka Swapnil Joshi, a known face in Hindi and Marathi cinema and television, has become proud papa to a baby girl. Swwapnil’s dentist wife Leena Joshi delivered the baby on Monday, May 25, say reports. It seems the acclaimed actor will have a double celebration this week, as his latest Marathi movie Laal Ishq released in theatres on Friday, May 27.

Laal Ishq is produced by Bollywood’s celebrated director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and directed by Swapna Waghmare Joshi. Actress Anjana Sukhani, a star in Bollywood and south Indian cinema, is seen opposite Swwapnil in Laal Ishq. The two lead actors as also the director are being appreciated by audiences for the movie.

Laal Ishq is a thriller and a murder mystery, and not just a love story. Its mystery is something that will draw audiences to the theatres. It seems the baby girl is lucky for Swwapnil, who has received rave reviews for all his performances so far, starting out as Krishna on TV as a child actor.

The actor told The Times of India from hospital, “I have no words to express my happiness. I always wanted to father a baby girl and now I am. It’s a big and positive turn in my life.”

Swwapnil was earlier married to Aparna Joshi, who was also a dentist like Leena. It seems he has found true happiness in his second marriage. Congratulations to Swwapnil and Leena on their baby girl!
