Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu have set tongues wagging with the revelation of their romantic relationship. But is it for real or is it only to establish them in the controversial house of Bigg Boss?
Is the relationship real or just went down as a PR Activity to increase TRP for Bigg Boss? This controversy starts when two of the people debut as a contestant in a reality show called as Bigg Boss to showcase a relationship between a 65-year-old man and 26-year-old women quoting “Age doesn’t matter in love”.
This controversy went up high when Anup Jalota was evicted from Bigg boss and later on in conversation with Bollywoodlife.com, Anup revealed “Kesar Ji and I had discussed that we would enter in as a guru-shishya Jodi. On stage, Jasleen said we were a couple. She was locked in six days before me. I had no time to react. I thought it might be a strategy and decided to play along. I can act a bit (laughs uproariously). I have told Kesar Matharu if he will let me do Jasleen’s Kanyadaan as and when she gets married. He said we will do her Kanyadaaan together.”
“It was a non-existent affair. But I did not know that I was so important. We have seen many couples with huge age difference but this kind of reaction is unwanted. I cannot understand this obsession about other people’s personal lives,” he added.
It will be interesting to see, how Jasleen will react to Anup’s shocking revelations once she is out from the house.
