Bigg Boss 12 contestant Anup Jalota and his love affairs

Mumbai: India's most controversial reality show 'Bigg Boss 12', has some most controversial constants this season. The main attraction of the show is 65-year-old 'bhajan samrat' Anup Jalota and his 28-year-old music student-cum-girlfriend Jasleen Matharu. What makes this Jodi weird is their age difference of 37 years, which made him one of the most-talked about contestants of this season.

Shockingly this bhajan singer (Devotional Singer) had many relationships before Jasleen Matharu.

Here are some of his love affairs:

Anup Jalota fell in love with a music student Sonali Sheth and married her against their family's approval. But their love had a very short life and she divorced him to marry Roop Kumar Rathod who was a professional tabla player, playback singer, music director and a music composer.

Recently, Sonali opened up about Anup’s new love-affair with his 28 years music student Jasleen Matharu.

She said, “Why would I talk about my ex-husband? I have moved on and I am very happy in my life. I wish Anup the very best in his life, professionally and personally”.

We get to know about this Israeli model from her book ‘Dear Mr Bollywood’, in which she has revealed a lot about Bollywood. She also wrote about her casting couch encounters with directors like Subhash Ghai, producer-director Anees Bazmee and Anup Jalota.

Speaking about the incident, she wrote in her book that Jalota tried to kiss her forcefully after calling her in his room. However, Jalota refuted all the casting-couch allegations and alleged that when people don’t get a job, they do such things.

By now Jalota is famous for his womanizer image in the industry. He was making headlines after the aspiring model and singer Aneesha Singh Sharma accused him of cheating.

Aneesha revealed that they were in off-and-on relationship for almost six months.

Aneesha also said, “Jalota promised to get me into Bigg Boss 12 and told me that I would be his ‘jodi’ on the popular reality show. We even had sex twice in the last six months,” she also added that, “She did not mind having sex with Jalota as he professed his love for her and said he wanted to settle down with her. He promised me marriage.”

Aneesha accused jalota for having sex with her twice a week under the false pretext of taking her with him in the popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss 12’ hosted by Salman Khan.

“He had promised to marry me and take me into the Bigg Boss house as his ‘jodi’ or partner. When I asked him about it, he got furious and threatened to kill me. He was in a very violent mood and pushed me. I fell to the ground and fearing that he would hit me, I somehow managed to leave the place,” Aneesha told media.

Jasleen Matharu

Now this unusual Jodi has entered ‘Bigg boss 12’ house and is already famous for its awkward age gap. The 28-year-old actress-singer, Jasleen Matharu is a music student of 65-year-old, Anup Jalota and they have been dating for the past 3 years.

Before coming to Bigg Boss Jasleen had revealed,“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”.

Still in Indian society people don’t approve a pupil-guru relationship. Indian culture looks down upon such relationships and critics them to the core. The couple is being criticized for their age gap and also for they are guru and pupil.

However, it is quite interesting to watch them on screen living in close proximity 24*7. It will be exciting for us as an audience if their love will protect them and take them forward in the show or the love will be gone with changing relationships in the house.
