In his Facebook post, Katju confessed that he had fallen in love with Jayalalithaa when he was young.
The former SC judge said he still finds the Tamil Nadu CM attractive and wished for her speedy recovery.
He also posted on Facebook one of his pictures with Jayalalithaa with a message 'Sherni aur Sher'.
This is what he said in his post:
“All these Cassandras of doom will be disillusioned. Jayalalitha is a sherni, and her opponents are langoors. She will recover and be back to work. When I was a young man, and she too was young I thought her extremely attractive and had fallen in love with her, though of course she did not know about it, and it was unrequited love. I still find her attractive (which unfortunately I am not now), and am still in love with her, and wish her speedy recovery. Hari Om”
Jayalalithaa is currently hospitalised in Chennai.
