Is Jackie Shroff gay?
The social-networking site Twitter went into a frenzy yesterday evening after a Karachi-based website claimed that Jackie Shroff is gay.
According to the site, the actor had a candid talk with a journalist where he is said to have accepted his sexual preferences.
The site even reported that Jackie will soon be shifting abroad as homosexuality isn't accepted in India.
Shroff is yet to make an official statement.
In the meantime, Poonam Pandey who appeared in the fourth season of Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi tweeted: 'If Jackie Shroff is gay, what's the big deal? Why should people talk about that when Sehwag scored 219? Really India!'
