When it comes to bhajan, Anup Jalota is one of the first names to strike our minds. The Padma Shri awardee is popular for his bhajans and ghazals. Aisi Lagi Lagan, Jag Mein Sundar Hai Do Naam, Rang De Chunariya, Maiyya Mori Main Nahi Maakhan Khayo are his some of popular bhajans. Everything was fine until he appeared in controversial show Bigg Boss and that too with his 'alleged girlfriend' Jasleen Matharu. This took everyone by surprise as it went against his image and public perception. Unaware how "Guru-shishya jodi turned into 'love Jodi," said Anup Jalota
