Star Plus popular dance reality show Nach Baliye 7's beloved couple Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna is on the hot seat today. The show kick started its journey introducing a new format and concept with amazing dance performances of popular celebrities on television.
TellyBuzz quizzed the adorable and good looking Jodi about their journey on Nach Baliye 7, their love life and much more...
What is the too much factor in this season of Nach Baliye?
Upen- The entire show is too much for me, there is lot of stress around. We rarely get time for rehearsals because of the other tasks happening in the house. This is not it, there are strict judges who are also too much; Nach Baliye has taken away all the sleep.
Karishma- Along with stress, injuries is also the too much factor. The main reason for stress are the injuries, every week we need a wow moment in our dance for which we do plenty of lifts, Upen got his body swollen especially neck and shoulder while lifting me. We have never done so much of dancing; now the level of dancing has also increased that adds more to the injuries.
According to the both of you, which judge is too much?
Upen- Chetan Bhagat
Karishma- Chetan Bhagat
Toughest competitor on Nach Baliye 7?
Upen- Everyone is strong, reaching so far in the competition proves that everyone has the ability and so they are here. We are raising our level high and so are others, it is difficult so say anything at this point.
Karishma- Talking about competition, Rashmi Desai - Nandish Sandhu and Himanshu Malhotra - Amruta Khanvilkar are very good dancers whereas Aishwarya Sakhuja and Rohit Nag are strong in their expressions. I think everybody is good so they are here.
How has Nach Baliye brought you closer to each other?
Upen- We got engaged on this show - it shows how close we have become, I think Bigg Boss 8 was a beautiful start for us, later we went to London to meet my family and from then our relationship stepped into another phase. Now with Nach Baliye 7, I am glad the way our graph is going.
Karishma- Nach has definitely brought us closer. The more time we spend together, the more we are getting to know each other. I am glad that we did two stressful reality shows back to back and still have managed to stay together. I believe if our relationship can survive so much stress through these two reality shows, then I am sure we will enjoy our togetherness without the stress as well. There are bound to be arguments but such ups and downs are normal in relationships. I feel that with every passing minute we are coming closer to each other.
Upen- Its difficult to hide our true emotions, be it getting upset with each other since the environment is so stressful. However, we try not to forget that we are in a competition. As humans, we tend to grow under such stressful circumstances and a relationship will definitely strengthen by bringing both partners closer to each other. We tend to learn when to give space to our partner as well as not cross their boiling points. I believe it brings growth in the relationship.
Upen recently proposed Karishma for marriage on Nach Baliye. So where are they planning to settle post marriage, India or London?
Upen- I have been working in India for almost 12 years, it will always be a part of my life. We are lucky to have two homes one in India and the other one in London.
Karishma- We will stay in both of our homes.
Is there any third reality show in a row for you guys?
Not really, we have our individual films lined up for the year and so with the flow of time, let's see if any good offer comes along, we would love to work together.
Indeed this couple deserves to take the Nach Baliye 7 trophy home!
