'Bigg Boss' ex-contestant Jasleen files FIR against co-contestant Deepak Thakur
Apparently, what happens in the Bigg Boss house doesn't merely stay inside. In fact, two former co-contestants from the popular reality show's last installment have taken their in-house quarrels to another level. As it happened, singer Deepak Thakur posted an online video allegedly insulting his former co-participant Jasleen Matharu, who has now filed a police complaint over the matter. Here is more.
Jasleen and Deepak co-participated in 'Bigg Boss 12'
To recall, both Jasleen and Deepak co-participated in popular Colors TV reality show, Bigg Boss, last year. For the uninitiated, the duo couldn't make peace with each other, and were often seen engaged in a war of words. Eventually, Jasleen got evicted from the show, while Deepak went on to become second runner-up, taking home a prize money of Rs. 20 lakh.

The video received mixed reactions on social media. While some found it funny, others said it was distasteful. Clearly, Jasleen wasn't pleased. The 28-year-old singer, who appeared on the show with noted singer-musician Anup Jalota, was quick to react, as she filed a police complaint against Deepak, over the said matter. Soon, Deepak felt the heat and posted an apology video on social media.
