REVEALED: Jackie Shroff is not gay!
Mumbai: Jackie Shroff has finally cleared the air about his sexual preference. Since Thursday evening, the actor had been trending on social networking sites like Twitter, when news of his being homosexual was leaked by a website.
The website claimed that Jackie had given an interview to the members of the press in a suburban Mumbai hotel and stated that he was gay.
When contacted by DNA, the actor denied the news completely.
Jackie who is currently shooting in Mysore was not aware of the news initially. Speaking to the daily, the fuming actor said, “I want to personally find that person and beat him up. From where did they get this piece of information? Anybody who knows me wouldn’t think like this in their wildest dreams.”
“People say whatever comes to their minds. I haven’t spoken like this to anybody. I don’t know from where they got this information. I must have spoken about my adulation for a few male actors, but I don’t think I ever meant something like that in a sexual way. In fact, I don’t even recollect which conversation these guys are referring to,” Jackie added.
So was it a publicity stunt to promote Jackie’s film? “Could you tell me which film is releasing? (On being told the name of the film) Is it? But I am told that it is a regional Telugu film. So are they dubbing that in Hindi now? I am in Mysore shooting for my film and I don’t have the faintest idea of all this. Can you please ask the producers if they have any idea about it,” the actor said.
