Bhajan singer Anup Jalota, who participated in the popular reality TV show Bigg Boss this year with his rumoured girlfriend Jasleen Matharu, has now denied being in a romantic relationship with her.
Anup and Jasleen, who entered the Bigg Boss house as a ‘vichitra jodi’ – according to the theme of the show, had indulged in a lot of PDA and went on dates, too.
But post-eviction, Jalota has been narrating a different story. He said that their relationship is of ‘guru shishya’ and even revealed that he wants to perform Jasleen’s ‘kanyadaan’.
In an interview with Bollywoodlife, the 65-year-old singer said that he called up Jasleen’s father Kesar, who is a friend, and cleared out everything.
“Kesar Ji and I had discussed that we would enter Bigg Boss as a guru-shishya jodi. On stage, Jasleen said we were a couple. She was locked in six days before me. I had no time to react. I thought it might be a strategy and decided to play along. I can act a bit. I have told Kesar Matharu if he will let me do Jasleen’s Kanyadaan as and when she gets married. He said we will do her Kanyadaaan together,” the singer said.
The singer insists on being shocked after both of them were introduced as a ‘couple’ in the show.
“I wanted to keep it dignified, which is why we avoided any kind of PDA inside the house. I have to ask Jasleen why she said that we were a couple on the premiere night,” he added.
Meanwhile, Jasleen, who is still in the Bigg Boss house, was spotted talking about Jalota’s exit from the show and how she is sad but would continue to play the game.
