Talking to Aaj Tak Jasleen’s father said, “I will never give my approval to this relationship. I will not give my blessings to them, and I would rather keep my distance from this.”
Mr. Matharu told Aaj Tak that he introduced Jasleen to Anup Jalota three or four years ago so that the 65-year-old singer could help her improve her singing skill.
However, he never had any idea something could be cooking between the both of them.
He said, “I was told they were entering as guru-shishya jodi. She never told me about this. When they made the announcement, my entire family couldn’t believe their eyes. We all got very angry.”
The duo confirmed their relationship on the premiere night of Bigg Boss 12.
Contestant Shivashish Mishra asked them, “Are you dating or are you in a live-in relationship?” to which Jasleen replied, “Bigg Boss is not a dating show.”
She concluded by saying that they are “both important for each other.”
Before entering the Bigg Boss house Jasleen had shared with a news daily, “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. We have been dating each other for the last three and a half years.”
Meanwhile, Kesar Matharu refused to go to Bigg Boss 12 as a guest as long as Anup Jalota is on the show.
Mr. Matharu sent a message for Anupa Jalota and Jasleen via Aaj Tak, “They should concentrate on improving their image. They have made a mistake and now the only thing they can do is to play a fair game so that public gets a good message.”
