65-year-old Anup Jalota, who is prominently a bhajan singer in the Indian singing circuit, is also now a contestant on Bigg Boss’ twelfth instalment and his relationship with 37-year-younger, Jasleen Matharu is grabbing the eyeballs from every corner. But did you know that before Jasleen, Anup ji had been married to three women in his life? Let’s enlist the women in Anup Jalota’s life for you.
First marriage with Sonali Sheth
Anup Jalota found his first love in Sonali Sheth. Sonali hails from a Gujarati family and is also a playback, ghazal and bhajan singer. While still a music student, she fell in love with young Anup and the two got married against their respective families’ approval. However, the marriage didn’t last long and the two divorced each other. Sonali went on to marry another famous singer, Roop Kumar Rathod and Anup ji headed towards his second marriage.
Second marriage, an arranged one
This time, going with his family, Anup Jalota went down the path of arranged marriage and got married to Bina Bhatia. Not much is known about her, but as against everyone’s thought, considering that this was an arranged marriage set-up, Anup ji and Bina’s marriage too went for a toss and the couple got divorced later.
Third time unlucky in marriage
We know of many celebrities who have gotten married not twice but thrice and more times. Anup Jalota belongs to the same club. After the failed marriage with Bina Bhatia, Anup ji got married to Medha Gujral. For the uninitiated ones, it must be mentioned here that Medha belongs to both the politics and entertainment industries of India. On one hand, she is the niece of former Indian Prime Minister, I.K. Gujral and on the other, she was the first wife of the prolific director, Shekhar Kapur. This marriage seemed to be sailing smoothly and the couple also had a baby boy whom they named, Aryaman. However, life had other plans and in 2014, unfortunately, Medha passed away due to liver failure and second heart attack, leaving Anup ji unlucky for the third time in love.
The latest relationship with Jasleen Matharu
Post their entry inside the Bigg Boss 12 house, it has been confirmed that 28-year-old actress-singer, Jasleen Matharu is dating 65-year-old, Anup Jalota for the past 3 years.
