Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu reveals why she faked relationship with Anup
Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu, After Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu has denied being in a relationship with the bhajan singer terming it all a prank. The 28-year-old singer got evicted along with BB Marathi winner Megha Dhade in a double eviction tonight. In an exclusive telephonic conversation with India Today Online, Jasleen has admitted to faking relationship with bhajan samrat Anup Jalota. She said she meant to play a prank with Salman, but did not get a chance to clarify and her joke backfired.
How has been your journey in the Bigg Boss 12 house?
It has been wonderful. I have made both friends and enemies, especially enemies as you must have seen. You also know who my enemies are. Sreesanth, Megha, Dipika, Romil are my friends. Surbhi, Rohit, Somi, and Deepak obviously are among my enemies. I am surprised how these four people are still in the house while I am out as I have reached this far by playing a fair game. Both Megha and I are out and it’s sad that we have been voted out.
You especially did not get along well with Deepak. You two were involved in a lot of fights too.
I can’t understand Deepak’s thinking. He and Surbhi did not leave any stone unturned in my character assassination. Even Salman sir lashed out at them for making such remarks about me. Also, I just came to know that during the sword task, Deepak said about me that I neither look like a man or a woman. I am shocked how can one say such things about a girl and how will he feel if somebody says such things about his sister. It just shows his mindset. This is a very ghatiya soch.
Somi was the recent addition to your list of enemies. Was it because of your friendship with Romil?
Romil and I have been friends since Day 1 of the show and we also connected very well. He was the only one among happy club members who sat with me when I went to jail. Somi might be feeling jealous about his friendship with me. Like she said that I was trying to copy her style. I don’t need to copy her style. As war as Indian wear in concerned, I wear that every week. I have also heard that she said kya Romil hamesha jasleen se chipakta rahta hai. Romil and I have always been close and she was plain jealous.
Salman lashed out at you at one of the Weekend Ka Vaar episodes for being an unfair judge.
I don’t think I was unfair. Surbhi, Romil, KV were playing a dirty game and I didn’t want to support them. Their arguments did not have any meat. Besides, I am a human being and I wanted one of my friends to become captain. But had they performed the task well, I would have definitely supported them. You can call it my revenge also as Surbhi during her captaincy misused her power and nominated me giving a flimsy reason. In fact I had named their gang chepu gang because of this.
Anup ji after coming out of the house said he didn’t date you ever and it was your strategy to fake the relationship. Whereas, you have been maintaining that the two of you were actually dating. What’s the truth?
This was actually a joke. I wasn’t in a relationship with Anup ji. We were entering the show as guru-shishya. During our introduction, Anup ji had clearly told Salman that we were entering as guru- shishya. I thought of playing a prank with Salman. And you must have noticed I was also laughing at that time. I thought Anup ji will react or clear it out, but unexpectedly he kept quiet and didn’t react. We entered the house and we could never clear this misunderstanding.
What was your father’s reaction after meeting you?
Initially he expressed his shock and told me what he went through in these three months. It’s very embarrassing and as a daughter I felt very bad that he had to go through all this. I came to know only after coming out of the house that this had become such a massive issue. I told dad that it was a joke.
Now that it’s clear and Anup ji and you were never lovers, did you find a boy of your choice in the BB 12 house?
(Laughs) Wow, this is the most unique question I have faced after coming out of the house. Half the people are married…Shivashish is a good friend and will always remain a good friend. No, I don’t think I liked any of the boys in the BB 12 house.
What about Romil. You guys have been flirting a lot lately.
You should ask Romil this question. Maybe he fell for me and that’s why Somi was jealous. On a serious note, he is a married man, and I am not interested in him.
