The twelfth season of controversial reality show Bigg Boss premiered on September 16 and, very obviously, the internet isn’t interested in anything else apart from updates surrounding it. Bigg Boss, folks, implies controversy and this season, even before drama ensued inside the house, it did, outside. Devotional singer Anup Jalota’s entry into the show with his partner Jasleen Matharu has stunned the audience.
Why? Because of their age gap – the same factor that wreaked havoc a month ago in Priyanka Chopra’s and her fiancé Nick Jonas’ respective lives after she formalized her relationship with the American singer, who is ten years younger than her. It’s the same story in Jalota’s case – just that, the scene is in reverse here.
Jalota is 65 while Jasleen in 28. The buck, certainly, stopped there for the internet soon after this fact was revealed. Host Salman Khan, in fact, was stupefied after Jalota confirmed his relationship with Jasleen on the Bigg Boss 12 stage.
Thus, if Salman was left awestruck, what else could the internet even do apart from aggravating the situation further by trolling the couple. Memes invoking his relationship were circulated across the internet while several also brought in a reference to Milind Soman’s and his wife Ankita Konwar’s difference in age. He is 52 and she is some twenty odd years younger than him.
Sample these tweets:
Well, it’s impossible to gauge the regressive mindset of the internet because it just cannot control its deluge and ultimately ends up interfering in the business of others, uninvited, of course. Folks, try getting a life, maybe because mindless trolling as well, just mindless, with reference to your wit and humour.
