Almost ten years later, the picture is in still in the news, not in India, but in Mexico.
John’s famous picture with his yellow trunks has landed on to an advertisement for a gay cruise in Mexico, only minus the shorts.
The organisers only took the upper body and conveniently skipped out the part that had made headlines and we wouldn't want to get into the reason for it.
Author Nia Levy King had posted this picture on Twitter, wondering if the actor was aware about it.
The reactions to the tweet, however, were divided. While some of those who commented felt John wouldn’t mind it as he is 'a chill guy', some felt it should be removed as his fans won’t like this.

We would like to know what John feels about it surely.
John had played a character, who along with Abhishek, pretended to be gays in the film.
It was perhaps the first mainstream out-and-out commercial Hindi film where homosexuality played an important plot point.
Despite several reports of a sequel, John's pose still makes more headlines for the film than the second installment....
