If you want to know more about this vichtra jodi, let us give you a brief.

Anup is a veteran classical singer who performs ghazals and bhajans.

He is a recipient of the prestigious Padma Shri award for excellence in Art, Indian Classical.

The 65-year-old singer has been married thrice and now is living with Jasleen in Mumbai.

He was first married to singer Sonali Sheth without the approval of his family, but this union did not last and the two parted ways. He then tied the knot with Bina Bhatia, a girl his parents chose for him; however, this too ended in divorce. He finally married Medha Gujral, the niece of former PM of India, IK Gujral. They have a son together, Aryaman. Unfortunately, she passed away due to liver failure in 2014.

Social media has gone into a crazy frenzy about the age gap between the two singers (Anup is 65 years old, while Jasleen is 28) and how they've been together for the past three years without anyone's knowledge. Trolls have also been comparing them to Priyanka and Nick and Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar. 

However, it is still being speculated that their entire relationship has been scripted for TRPs by the Bigg Boss Season 12 show runners. A source close to them said, "I spoke to Anup Jalota a week ago, and he confirmed to me that he is going inside the house. He mentioned that he was going inside as a couple with Jasleen and the whole casting was done by Bigg Boss."

"There is nothing between them. The two only got together because that's what the script demanded. In fact, he also told how things will keep getting interesting. They have to show their love equation inside the house. Things will be intimate and there are chances that we will also see Jasleen getting attracted towards another inmates and things steaming up between the two," he further added.

Even Jasleen's father was left dumbfounded when he heard the news - he didn't have any idea that the two were seeing each other. Talking to a news portal, he said, "This news was a shocker for me as well as for my family. However, I don’t want to comment anything on her personal life till I meet her. She is on the Bigg Boss 12 house and want her to stay positive and emerge as the winner of the show."

Well, we don't know what the future holds for this couple, but we're pretty sure that the Bigg Boss house will stay hustling and bustling because of them.
