Bigg Boss 12: 65-yr-old Anup Jalota to enter house with girlfriend Jasleen Mathura

Renowned devotional singer Anup Jalota will take part on the reality show, ‘Bigg Boss 12’ with his girlfriend Jasleen Mathura as ‘Vichitra Jodi’. For the first time it was surfaced that Anup Jalota is in love with Jasleen, who is 37 years younger to the singer. Jasleen, aged 28 revealed in an interview that she has been dating him for the past three years and ‘Bigg Boss 12’ will allow them to spend more time together.  

In an interview to Times of India, Jasleen said, “This is going to come as a huge shock to my parents and friends as no one is aware of my relationship with Anup Jalota ji. We have been dating each other for the last three and a half years. We usually don’t get time to spend with each other in the outside world due to our busy schedules, but now with the help of  Bigg Boss, we will get to do so. Also, we will get to know if we can stay together forever,” Jasleen said.

 “Age gap has never bothered us and now once we go inside the house, we will get to know the real reaction of the people about our relationship. Until now, nobody knew anything,” Jasleen said.

Anup revealed that the reality show approached him two years ago but he rejected then due to work overload. He had said, "Endemol approached me 2 years back for the show. But that time I had lot of work commitments and concerts due to which I was unable to do. And when at the last moment I had to back out, they roped in Swami Om at my place. Yaad hai Swami Om jinhone ghar mein bhaut hungama kiya tha."

Before entering the house, Jalota told PTI, "Everyone is not the same. There are problems in a family, these things do happen. I am so much involved in spiritual and classical music... I don't have anger left in my life. I love music, I love to sing. It will be interesting to see how it is going to be inside the house." 

"When people would fight I will try to give solution. It is essential to understand that we often get angry because of someone else. I believe the solving problem is important," he added.

The singer added that he will continue following his daily routine during his stay in the house. “I will do my riyaz, yoga, walk on the treadmill and I am glad that they have provided me with the facilities.”

Well, netizens compared Jasleen Mathura and Anup Jalota’s age difference to Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas and Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar.
