The day Bigg Boss 12 was premiered on national television (September 16, 2018), all one could hear was about one couple, 65-year-old Anup Jalota and his 28-year-old muse, Jasleen Matharu. And thus, this ‘vichitra jodi’ went on to become nation’s latest sensation. (Do Read: Anup Jalota Breaks His Three-Year-Old Relationship With Girlfriend Jasleen Matharu In 'Bigg Boss 12')
And then came a task on Bigg Boss 12 which changed the relationship status of this vichitra jodi. A nomination task had ‘Bhajan Samraat’ Anup Jalota, kidnapped by Dipika Kakar. Jasleen Matharu was asked to give away all her clothes, make-up and get her long hair cut to shoulder-length as an alimony. And inspite of putting many thoughts to it, Jasleen declined to do it.
This act of Jasleen’s hurt Anup Jalota to the extent that he decided to part ways with her and play the Bigg Boss game as a ‘single’ and not as a ‘double’. Yesterday’s episode saw Jasleen break into tears when Anup Jalota announced that he wants to ‘break up’ with Jasleen due to her selfishness depicted towards him in an act. In a one-on-one conversation with Anup ji, Jasleen tried to make him understand that she has left behind everything to come to the show with him, but he seemed unpersuaded. Jasleen asks Anup ji to reconsider his decision once, post which, she is seen crying inconsolably, with her co-contestants by her side. Even before the show was premiered, Colors TV’s twitter handle showcased a teaser which contained glimpses of all of these action with ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahaani’ playing in the background. And ever since, Twitteratis have been posting hilarious comments on the same. Checkout a few screenshots below:

Weren’t they totally hilarious? Also, when Jasleen and Anup had entered the Bigg Boss house, the couple’s huge age gap was compared to that of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Even then, the couple was not spared from getting trolled by Twitteratis. Checkout a few screenshots of the trolls: (Checkout!

Before entering the Bigg Boss house, Jasleen, in an interview with The Times of India had stated that no one knew about her and Anup ji’s relationship. She had shared, “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.”
In an interview, Jasleen's father Kesar Matharu reacted to the news of her relationship with Anup Jalota. A Hindustan Times report had him stating, “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”. (Also Read: Akanksha Puri Confirms Her Relationship With Paras Chhabra, Says Pavitra Punia Was Just A Rebound)
