Mumbai: Social networking sites went into a tizzy Thursday evening with the news of Jackie Shroff admitting to a website that he is homosexual.
The website stated that the actor had reportedly confessed that he is gay and that he prefers men and it’s a natural feeling.
According to the website, the actor had a candid chat with some journalists at a suburban hotel where he talked about his sexual preference.
The actor had reportedly stated that the feeling came much later and in 80s and 90s he never felt this way. The emotional actor said that he would be leaving his family and moving abroad soon as he did not have faith in the Indian society and its way of dealing with homosexuals.
The actor married longtime girlfriend Ayesha Dutt in 1987. The couple have two children. Interestingly, Jackie’s son Tiger will soon be launched in Bollywood by Aamir Khan.
Jackie Shroff is yet to give an official statement on this issue.
