Known to make controversial remarks former Supreme Court Judge Markandey Katju has a soft heart which was revealed in his Facebook post. In a heartfelt Facebook post, Katju revealed that he had a crush on ex-Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa as he found her ‘very beautiful’.
Katju went on ahead and described the whole incident how he met Jayalalithaa for the first time. He said “I met Jayalalithaa for the first time in November 2004 in Raj Bhawan in Chennai where I went to take oath as Chief Justice of Madras High Court, and she was then the Chief Minister. I never spoke about my feeling for her.”
Remembering Jayalalithaa, Katju shared a Tamil romantic song ‘Paarvai Ondre Pothume’ from the movie ‘Yaar Nee’.
The ex-SC judge wrote:
When I was young I had a crush on Jayalalitha, whom I thought very beautiful, though of course it was unrequited love, and she had no idea about it.
She was born in February 1948, while I was born in September 1946.
I met her for the first time in November 2004 in Raj Bhawan in Chennai where I went to take oath as Chief Justice of Madras High Court, and she was then the Chief Minister. Even then she was beautiful, though of course I could not tell her about my feeling for her in my youth, as that would have been inappropriate.
