Bigg Boss fanatics, just how excited are you all? The season 12 premiere happened last night and it got the whole country glued to their television sets. There were so many known faces who made it to the beach-themed Bigg Boss house and the commoners proved quite a competition at first glance (read the full list of Bigg Boss 12 contestants and get to know them better). But out of all the contestants, it was Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu who caught everyone's eye - including Salman Khan and last season's winner Shilpa Shinde.
The two confirmed their relationship as they entered the Bigg Boss house. The internet couldn't handle it at all and erupted with tweets and memes.
Social media went into a frenzy with fans not too happy with the pairing. People started questioning the relationship that the bhajan singer and his student share. Here's what Twitter had to say.
Not judging. But why to expose their inner feelings, if it's really there. And why Jalota Ji chose a national platform for the Acid test. Sorry Gut feeling says it won't last long 😥😥😥 feeling bad for the Bhajan Samrat
The manner in which he has come and said she's only student , then she came and said they're in love. it made him look stupid. He's made a fool of himself on national tv. So many people saying it's their private life . They should have kept it private. Cheap publicity stunt
Jasleen had earlier given an interview to The Times of India and 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.”
Jasleen is a singer who has made her mark by working with the biggest names of the industry. She has almost 50k followers on Instagram and is a celebrity in her own right.
The 28-year-old was born and brought up in Mumbai and has learned both western and Indian classical music. She is also a trained Bharatnatyam and belly dancer. Her father was also a part of the entertainment industry - he was an actor, director and a scriptwriter.
She has worked with Mika Singh for three years and has featured in many music videos over the years. She made her debut as a singer with Love Day Love Day. She has even performed with industry veterans like Papon and Sukhwinder Singh.
And now for all of you wondering about her relationship with the 65-year-old singer, Jasleen 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."
