The much awaited TV reality show Bigg Boss has come back with its season 12 and so has its controversies. The first contestant being the topic of discussion and controversies is singer Anup Jalota who has participated in the show with his girlfriend Jasleen Matharu. Since day 1, the couple has been in news for their age gap of 37 years.
Anup had earlier denied any relationship with Jasleen, but now she came forward to confess that they have been dating since last 3 years. In an interview with TOI, she 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.”
She also 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.”
The duo has been getting severe backlash from people since then. And now, Bigg Boss 11 winner Shilpa Shinde has something to say about their relationship. She recently said, “Anup ji is not an isolated example of such relationships to feel weird about it. I don’t think it is wrong if two people are compatible and have developed a bond after staying together. Earlier, it was said that female should be younger than men but today the definitions have changed so if the society can accept that then why not this? Also, to target him for his profession is not correct. People should keep professional and personal different. A lot of people do a lot of things behind closed doors, to accept a relationship in public is not easy.”
