To everyone’s surprise, it was revealed during the premiere of Bigg Boss 12 that 28-year-old Jasleen Matharu and 65-year-old Anup Jalota are romantically involved with each other. What's most surprising is that Jasleen and Anup have been dating each other for the past three years. Before entering the Bigg Boss house, Jasleen spilled some beans on her relationship with Anup ji in an interview with The Times of India. The budding singer spoke candidly about the fact that the two don’t get to spend much time with each other and in the house, they will get a lot of time.
“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,” Jasleen remarked.
In the same interview, Jasleen was asked if the huge age-gap between them ever proved to be a hurdle in their relationship. To which, she retorted, "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."

She was then further probed to tell how the two will conduct themselves on Bigg Boss 12. On this note, Jasleen shared, “I won’t hold back myself in showing proximity with Anup ji if I am feeling low. I don’t think there is anything wrong with hugging someone.”
In another interview, when veteran singer Anup ji was asked about entering the house, he revealed that he is on a vacation. Here’s what Anup Jalota ji was quoted as saying, "I am very excited to make new friends inside the house. I'm not going inside the house for popularity." When asked what is his reason for entering the house, he added, "I am so busy in life that I take 24 flights in a month so I have not got any rest. So, when they approached me, I thought this is the perfect time to take a vacation, make friends, and rest for some time.” (Suggested Read: Ekta Kaul Steals Her Husband Sumeet Vyas' Surname, Changes Her Name To Ekta Kaul Vyas)
Earlier, speaking to PTI, Anup ji had said that his spirituality is what going to help him stay in a good stead inside the house. He remarked, “Everyone is not the same. There are problems in a family, these things do happen. I am so much involved in spiritual and classical music... I don’t have anger left in my life. I love music, I love to sing. It will be interesting to see how it is going to be inside the house.” (Check Out: Actor Sumeet Sachdev Had Written A Song For His Baby Who Died Recently After Wife's Miscarriage)
