The popular Bhajan singer added that he’s not trying to judge Matharu’s sense of style but wants to highlight that he comes from a much simpler family background where he wears a basic dhoti-kurta and sings devotional songs. “I am just saying it wouldn’t have gone down well with the people around me. Hum toh dhoti-kurta wale hain (dhoti-wearing man) who sings devotional songs. How would Jasleen’s avatar have been in sync with that?” he explained.
The speculations were rife about Matharu and Jalota dating each other when they participated in Bigg Boss 12 and declared on the stage that they were seeing each other only to confess that it was all a made-up scene because they wanted to create more buzz around their presence in the show.
However, the buzz didn’t die even years after the show. Jasleen Matharu posted the ‘wedding photos’ on Instagram without any caption that led to all the speculations come alive again. Talking about all kinds of comments he got from his followers after the pictures went viral, Anup Jalota said, “I have been telling them ‘Aapko bhi mubarak ho’ (congratulations to you too). What else do I tell people who believe forwarded messages and misconstrue whatever they see online? Those who’re clearly asking if Jasleen and I have got married to each other, I am definitely telling them a clear ‘No’.”
