The 65-year-old ghazal singer, Anup Jalota has taken the internet by storm right from his entry in Big Boss 12 with 28-year-old girlfriend Jasleen Matharu.
Recently, Bigg Boss 11 winner Shilpa Shinde and 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein' star, Karan Patel entered the Big Boss house to play with the 2nd installment of the first task with the housemates. A section of the media got in touch with former winner and asked her about the much-talked Anup and Jasleen controversy.

Shilpa defended the couple and said, “Anup ji is not an isolated example of such relationships to feel weird about it. I don't think it is wrong if two people are compatible and have developed a bond after staying together. Earlier, it was said that female should be younger than men but today the definitions have changed so if the society can accept that then why not this? Also, to target him for his profession is not correct. People should keep professional and personal different. A lot of people do a lot of things in closed doors, to accept a relationship in public is not easy."
Anup and Jasleen’s relationship has become been making headlines. The latter’s father, Kesar Matharu, who’s a film director by profession, issued a statement which read, "I am not at all disturbed by the online bashing. She is a trained singer and had done various stage shows with many popular Bollywood singers. We belong to a very reputed family and my daughter is already a prominent figure in the industry and there is no point of seeking cheap publicity. 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.”
