And the one person who is still struggling to come to terms with this shocking fact is Jasleen’s father, Kesar Matharu. According to a report in Hindustan Times, a shocked and shaken Kesar opened up about his daughter’s relationship with Anup ji and said, “My relatives are saying you should not let your daughter enter the house. Someone was saying- had she been my daughter, I would have killed her. I don’t believe in such drastic steps. We don’t have any right to take our kids’ life, but if she has made a mistake, she will have to face the repercussions”.
In another interview with Aaj Tak, Kesar revealed that he did not have the slightest glimmer that his daughter was in a relationship with Anup ji for the past three and a half years. He was quoted as saying, “I had no clue about this. 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. Within ten minutes, I started getting calls from friends. My wife, while watching the show, got up and went inside. It was very unexpected”.
Jasleen’s father also laid bare the fact that he had introduced Anup ji to his daughter so that she could improve her singing skills but exactly when did they got romantically involved, he had no clue. Kesar said, “He kept coming to our house, but I could never sense there is something cooking between the two. We never came to know when all this started”.
He is also adamant that he is never going to accept this relationship, “If she asks me, 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”.

Earlier, taking the platform of Bigg Boss 12 as a legit pedestal to reveal her relationship status, Jasleen had unveiled, “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”.
And on being questioned if the age gap of 37 years between her and Anup ji ever bothered her, Jasleen had replied, “Age gap has never bothered us and now once we go inside the house we will get to know the real reaction of people about our relationship. Since until now, nobody knew anything. So, whether good, bad or ugly, we will get reactions from the house”.
On learning about his daughter’s relationship with Anup ji, Jasleen’s father had earlier defended her and told a media portal, “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. There are many other contestants who have a controversial past, my daughter has not done anything wrong. I wish her all the best for the show and be an inspiration for the society”.

Abhishek Walia.” Another tweet could be read as, “When you expected Milind Soman but got #AnupJalota instead”.
In one of the funniest moments on Day 1 inside the Bigg Boss 12 house, Jasleen denied sharing a bed with Anup ji, and he had wittily remarked, “Toh main dur hogaya, hum khule main soenge (So, I am far apart now? We’ll sleep in the open)”. Everyone lost their control with laughter and Jasleen replied, “Toh aap kahan pe ho abhi? Aap ek kaam karo, wait karo, apko partner mil jaega koi (So, where are you now? You do one thing, you wait. You would find a partner soon)”. (Suggested Read: Women In Anup Jalota's Life: He Had Married Thrice Before Dating 37-Year-Younger, Jasleen Matharu)
