Supreme Court Judge (ex) had crush on Jayalalithaa

Ex Supreme Court judge, Markandey Katju took to social media again on Monday speaking about his crush on Jayalalitha.

“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,” Katju said in a Facebook post.

Katju also dedicated a romantic Tamil song ‘Paarvai Ondre Pothume’ from the movie ‘Yaar Nee’ in memory of J Jayalalithaa. 

In October last year, when Jayalalithaa was critically ill and had been admitted to Apollo Hospital in Chennai, Katju had posted saying he is still in love with her and wished for her speedy recovery

"I still find her attractive (which unfortunately I am not now) and am still in love with her, and wish her speedy recovery," Katju had stated in his post which he had quickly taken down, fearing criticism.
