The most controversial show, Bigg Boss is back with its fourteenth season and it brought along loads of drama and gossips to spike the TRPs like nothing else. Kumar Sanu’s son, Jaan Kumar Sanu is a contestant in Bigg Boss 14 and in an episode while speaking to his fellow inmates in the house, Jasmin Bhasin, Sara Gurpal and others, he spoke about his parents’ separation. Jaan said, “For me, my mother plays the role of both parents. My parents separated when my mother was six months pregnant with me, hence, I have grown up with her only since childhood. My mom is both a mother and a father to me. Before entering the Bigg Boss House, what worried me most was that who will now take care of my mother. My thinking when it comes to love is old school because of my mom, I feel love only happens with one person and we should only be with one person. I am just like my mother.”
Sometime back, Graphic Designer and one of the funniest men on social media, Akshar Pathak had taken to his Twitter handle to share a meme on Jaan Kumar Sanu. Creating a meme on Jaan’s name, Akshar had tweeted, “Back when I learnt that bappi lahiri has a son named bappa lahiri I thought nothing could possibly ever beat that but today I learnt that kumar sanu has a son named kumar janu.” Clarifying that his name is not 'Kumar Janu', Jaan had written, "Hi, I am Kumar Sanu's son and my name is Jaan Kumar Sanu. Meme mat banao yaar." To which, Akshar thanked Jaan for being such a sport and had replied, “@jaan.kumar.sanu are you telling Google is lying?! (also thanks for being such a sport) (also pls tell your dad I’M A HUGEEEEEE FAN).” Jaan had replied, "@aksharpathak absolutely bro! Will convey the message!! And yes, I've been trying to get the Google thing changed because Gita pe haath rakh ke kehta hu I am not Kumar Janu."
