Love birds Upen Patel, Karishma Tanna to marry in 2016

The ‘Bigg Boss 8’ couple Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna, who is going strong, will tie the knot next year. While talking to BollywoodLife, Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna open up about their relationship and marriage plans.

When asked about getting hitched, Upen replied, "We stay with out families, And in India, I don't think it's appropriate to live-in together before getting married. Once Nach Baliye finishes, we will plan everything and we will get married sometime next year," said a smiling Upen Patel.

Upen and Karishma went a long way from ‘Bigg Boss 8’ to ‘ Nach Baliye 7’. They have been a strong contender of the dance reality show and they loved being on the show and explore new dance forms in every episode.

Talking about the journey, Upen said,  “It’s actually hard to compare the two shows because we were both at different stages in Bigg Boss 8. Her journey was more emotional compared to mine; her journey was also longer than mine. After Bigg Boss, we spent more time together and our relationship blossomed. We then got a chance to work again when Nach Baliye 7 came. Karishma was initially hesitant as she had other offers too, but I thought Nach Baliye was a great offer and we took it on. Since then it is an even more wonderful journey and we have become closer. We have been able to dance together and I have become a better dancer too. We earlier did Bollywood dances, but now we both have learnt new styles too”.

Karishma said that she learnt to be patient from the show. Both Karishma and Upen said that their engagement on ‘Nach Baliye 7’ is the highlight of the show for them.

Being voted the cutest and the hottest couple on the show, Karishma said, “Yes, we have been awarded for both the cutest as well as the hottest couple on the show. We have even received gifts for that and it feel’s great”.

Upen and Karishma has no plans to move in together but marriage is definitely on the cards.
