Of late, Anup Jalota has been courting a lot of controversies. Last year, he made headlines, when the popular devotional singer participated in television reality show Bigg Boss 12. Jalota became one of the most talked-about contestants as he acknowledged his relationship with Jasleen Matharu, who was 37 years younger than him. However, after the show, the two denied being in a relationship.

And now, he is receiving flack for calling legendary actress Meena Kumari as 'female Guru Dutt'. On Meena Kumari's birth anniversary, Jalota took to Twitter to remember the actress and recognise her contributions to the Indian cinema. He wrote, "Remembering the Female Guru Dutt, #MeenaKumari ji for her exceptional contribution to this Industry today. #birthannivarsary #tragedyqueen #pakeezah (sic)."

Soon after, when fans noticed his post, they rushed to the comment section to mock the singer. While some tagged him as 'male Anuradha Paudwal', others tried to make a point that Meena Kumari was a name big enough and she doesn't need to be compared to Guru Dutt.

While one of them wrote, "Why is she a female Guru Dutt? She was a legend in her own right and doesn't need to piggyback off the name of a man to be remembered." Another commented, "Waiting for the day when you'll tweet like male Meena Kumari for Guru Dutt."

"You are asking for trouble when you call Meena Kumari as a shadow of another person. Your intentions may not wrong, but choice of words is failing you and insulting #MeenaKumari and her fans," tweeted another user.
