Anup Jalota reveals he wouldn’t marry Jasleen Matharu even if he was younger
Anup Jalota has been making headlines these days as a picture of him with Jasleen Matharu has been doing the rounds. The two were dressed up as a married couple and netizens were quick to speculate that the two have tied the knot, but Jalota recently said that he would not marry Jasleen even if he would have been younger now.
In an interview with ETimes, Jalota opened up about a hypothetical situation where he was younger, would he marry Matharu then, he said, “Not at all. I wouldn’t have married her.” The reason being he said, “Her modern and glamorous dressing wouldn’t have been appreciated in my family culture.”
Further, he was asked if this means he did not like women dressing up in western and glamorous, “No, I am not saying that. I am just saying it wouldn’t have gone down well with the people around me, Hum toh dhoti-kurta wale hain who sings devotional songs. How would Jasleen’s avatar have been in sync with that?. “
Talking about the movie that he is starring in with Jasleen, Jalota said that he did it merely because he was paid well contrary to what Jasleen’s father thinks. “I have been paid very well to act in it. Jasleen’s dad’s thinking might be different, but I am clear that I am not doing this film to clear people’s doubts. When I have not been in love with Jasleen, how can I marry her? And let people speculate whatever they want. I am not going to scream and drive my point home. So, I am clear that I have done this film to only earn good money. Anything wrong with that?”
Let’s see what Jasleen has to say to this. Till then you guys stay tuned to this space.
