Anup Jalota Says Won’t Marry Jasleen Matharu Even If He Was Younger Because Of Her Dressing Sense
A few days back, Jasleen Matharu shocked social media by sharing pictures of herself and Anup Jalota as bride and groom. She took to her Instagram to share these pictures where the two looked like newly wed couple. Soon, there were rumors of the two getting married going around and but in actuality, those pictures were taken from a shoot. Now, Anup Jalota has come forward to reveal that the two are not married and that he couldn’t marry Jasleen even if he was younger.
In an interview to ETimes, Anup Jalota said that he wouldn’t have married her even if he was 35. “Her modern and glamorous dressing wouldn’t have been appreciated in my family culture,” he said, quick to explain that he wasn’t judging her dressing style. “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 said that after the picture went viral, several people have written in to him to offer congratulations. “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’.”
The picture was originally shared by Jasleen herself, but was later revealed to have been taken for an upcoming film, titled Woh Meri Student Hai, in which he plays Jasleen’s father. “It’s not as it looks like. This is a part of the scene from my upcoming film Woh Meri Student Hai. It’s a dream sequence where Jasleen is getting married and I am her father,” he had told India Today.
