Ever since  they shared screen space on Bigg Boss last year veteran singer Anup Jalota and model-singer Jasleen Matharu have been repeatedly linked although the veteran singerhas repeatedly denied the linkups pleading that they are like father and daughter.

Now in a startling development a picture of Anup and Jasleen dressed as a groom and a bride surfaced online.

It was time to clear the air.

As usual Anupji called back prominently laughing off  the picture as a  fantasy.  “That’s a  still from a  film that Jasleen  and I are doing.  The film is called Vo Meri Student Hai, and I play Jasleen’s music teacher who gets her married to a suitably eligible man.”

Sounds exactly like Anupji’s real-life relationship with Jasleen.

“It is!”  the Ghazal singer replies. “I play more-or-less my real-life role. I am a singer in  the film.And I’ve even  performed a rap number. Rap may be relatively  new  to America. In India  rap singing is as old as the mythological scriptures. If you remember Ashok Kumar  in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Ashirwaad (1969). He had sung a hit rap number Rail gadi chuk chuk.”


Coming  back  to the marriage  rumours Anupji says, “The  still is from a  dream  sequence in the film.Jasleen’s father  is the film’s director.”

Obviously a publicity stunt?

“Maybe , I don’t know. And I  don’t mind. At 67 I am  trying out all  sorts of new experiences including rap singing .Maze le raha hoon zindagi ke.”
