Anup Jalota, the Padmashri Awardee devotional songs singer entered the Big Boss reality show house as a participant yesterday at the launch of the show’s 12th season.
The 65 year old entered the show with his girlfriend of 3 years, Jalseen Matharu, 28, who also happens to be his student and singer. Their relationship reveal even left the host of the show Salman Khan stunned, creating a stir on social media platform, as well as raised eyebrows.
Never underestimate a man who sings Bhajans. Or for that matter who’s only 65 years young. ?#AnupJalota

For most of the Indians who equate people into devotional music as “saints” and have their own stereotypes, this reveal of Anup’s lifestyle came as a huge shocker. Anup and Jasleen’s equation was bound to become the topic of discussion, questioning and trolls on social media. However, many of the housemates who were unaware of them, slowly their curiosity is getting the better of them.
Romantic songs are for kids, real men like Anup Jalota impress girls with bhajans. Respect.

Bhajan singer Anup Jalota at 65 has a hot 28 year old girlfriend. A lot of parents would be surprised why their sons are singing bhajans in the bathrooms this morning

Everyone is interested in knowing about this “Vichitra” couple and their story on the show and seems like that’s not going down too well with Jasleen. Have a look at the teaser posted by the channel for tonight’s episode when the actual game begins.
People might troll them, look down upon them or even pass various character judgement, but one thing is for sure and that is, Anup and Jasleen are a super hit on social media and have already been given a moniker “AnJa” by Twitteratis. Don’t forget to watch the curiosity drama unfold at 9 PM on Colors Mon- Sunday.
