Anup Jalota is a very well-known name when it comes to the music concert. Known for his ghazals, the celebrated singer is an unusual addition to the 12th edition of this year's Bigg Boss. Like some of his singing contemporaries, Anup Jalota has refrained to make any controversial statements that would make him a target on social media. So his presence on Salman Khan's reality show will make him a very special presence. So do you want to know more about Anup Jalota, the celeb contestant?

Claim to fame

Known as the Bhajan Samraat, Anuj Jalota is known among the music lovers for his bhajan and ghazals. He has never shown much proclivity to Bollywood music. Some of his famous bhajans are Maiyya More Main Nahi Makhan Khayo, Aisi Lagi Lagan, ag Me Sundar Hai Do Naam, and Jand Chadariya Jhini Re Jhini. He was conferred Padma Shri by the government of India in 2012.


While he had stayed clear of any controversies, Anup Jalota's personal life has been under the scanner for having married thrice. But the biggest controversy that Jalota was in when a New York-based author Rina Golan has accused Subhash Ghai, Anup Jalota, Anees Bazmeeand Dr Ali Irani of indulging in casting couch in her biography. Anup Jalota (and the others) denied any such thing happened.

Such a priceless moment

Bigg Boss 12 will give the viewers a more intimate impression of Anup Jalota, who is more of an unknown quantity here. We don't know much about Jalota as a person, so Bigg Boss will surely open more doors to us about him. At least, the other contestants can have the treat of hearing him sing first hand.
