Upen Patel and lady love Karishma Tanna remained one the most popular celebrity couple on the dance reality show Nach Baliye 7. The couple who are referred to as 'UpMa' by their fans are wary of taking anything lightly, as the show nears its finale. This is the reason that Upen is ignoring his painful lower back injury and continuing with the rehearsals. Upen has been popping painkillers to dance despite the injury. Just like the rest of the participating couples, UpMa are also working hard to give a remarkable performance.
Right from the beginning, Upen has been outshining other contestants including his partner Karishma. The couple are dedicated and punctual about rehearsals but they had to break the schedule as Upen got injured while rehearsing for his act. The doctor detected lower back injury and advised him bed rest. But, the actor, who enjoys dancing, refused to follow the medical instructions and has been going on with rehearsals to put up a spectacular act. Upen said that he has been trying to raise the bar with each performance and doesn't want to let his fans down.
Ever since, Upen appeared in Big Boss last year, his life has been under a scanner. His relationship with Karishma has been widely speculated. The two were rumoured to be the highest paid couple and the juicy gossips on their relationship made them all the more popular. They have tried all kinds of tricks to remain in the news. Rumours suggested that the couple were famous for throwing tantrums on the sets. Masters in pulling off on-screen dramas, UpMa were successful in attracting audience attention.
The audience have been speculating the relationship of the contestants. There have been talks about rocky marriage of Rashmi Desai and Nandish Sandhu. Similarly, Sana Saeed and Depesh has been rumoured to be a fake one.
The four finalist couples include Upen-Karishma, Amruta Khanvilkar-Himmanshoo Malhotra, Rashmi-Nandish and Mayuresh Wadkar-Ajisha Shah. Preity Zinta, Farah Khan and author Chetan Bhagat have become tougher as they are expecting the participants to elevate their presentations.
