The Truth About Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu's Relationship Revealed

Anup Jalota(65) and Jasleen Matharu(28) have been making headlines from the time they entered Bigg Boss 12. On the show, the celebrities announced that they have been in a romantic relationship for three and a half years and now that Anup is out of the show, he claims that there is no love between the two. 

Your stint in Bigg Boss was somewhat marred by the ugly link-up with model Jasleen Matharu?
It was never meant to be ugly, nor was it meant to be a link-up. She is my shishya(student) outside Bigg Boss House and I am her guru. She learns music from me. And that’s the equation we were to share inside the Bigg Boss house.

So when did that equation change?
It didn’t change. We remained guru and shishya throughout the show. Nothing more nothing less. We shared no physical or emotional intimacy.

So why was your relationship with her announced to the world in such a salacious way?
Jasleen is responsible for it. When I  reached the Bigg Boss venue to enter the House I was shocked when she announced our relationship to Salman Khan as that of a boyfriend and a girlfriend. I couldn’t do anything at that late stage. She had been at the venue of the show from many days before the inauguration. I just rushed in. I had no time to give this(the salacious suggestion of  a relationship) any thought. I thought I would clear the air once we were inside the Bigg Boss house.

Why didn’t you?
Because Jasleen felt the link-up would benefit her career. And it did. She is still in the Bigg Boss house while I am out.

But surely you must have thought of how this would tarnish your image?  You are the Bhajan Samrat. Hindu households across the world wake up to your voice?
I  agree. I should ’ve thought of this. But I  knew I would clear the air once  I was evicted. And I have. Maybe a section of my fans is offended. I apologize to them. I can only assure them that my intention was not to offend at all.

Jasleen is now saying she’s shocked that you are denying their relationship?
What can  I  say? If she wants to continue with her naatak I can only request to stop it now. Enough is enough. Even her father has made it clear that we are not in a  relationship. He says he and I will do her kanyaadan jointly when she gets married. And we will.

Why would any decent girl want this kind of a linkup?
See, the  20-something  generation doesn’t care about the ethics of publicity as long as they get noticed. Jasleen is a  good singer. The problem is, she invests  30 per cent into her singing and  70 per cent into her image. I told her  father the day she reverses this ratio she will be a successful singer.

You are still grieving  for  your late wife(Medha Kapoor). I don’t understand  how you  could allow this cheap publicity gimmick?
I  realize I  should’ve put my foot down. You are  right  . It was  disrespectful not only to my fans  but also to the dead.

Did any good come out of  your Bigg Boss experience?
Oh yes. I learnt how to live  like an ordinary person, how to mop floors, clean dishes, etc.  It was a lesson in self-dependence that I will  cherish. I also lost 4 kgs in the Bigg Boss house. If I lose 4 more kilos I can host  Bigg Boss. And lastly, the show introduced me to the  younger genreration. So  my fan following is enhanced. I am looking forward to my  next live concert.
