Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel‘s coochie-coo moments during Bigg Boss 8 Halla Bol often remind me of the previous season’s lovebirds, Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon. One similarity between Gauahar and Karishma’s appearance on the show is that both of them are often misunderstood for their outspoken and flamboyant nature. Yes, Tanisha Mukerji and Arman Kohli‘s romance also caught the attention of many, but there was something about Gauahar and Kushal’s chemistry that weaved magic on the small screen. Karishma and Upen’s romantic moments seem to have created a similar impact.
Though Upen’s emotions for Tanna seem quite heartfelt, I personally cannot say the same thing about Tanna’s feelings for Upen. However, going by her demeanour in the last couple of episodes, I guess she’s gradually falling for him too. After all, she did finally tell him that she will think about marriage after seeing how things go between them, once they get out of the house.
But is marriage in any of the Bigg Boss couples’ fate? Tan-Man and Gauahar-Kushal parted ways just a year after their exit from the house. So I can’t help but wonder whether their love was ever real or they just chose to indulge in short flings to gain some popularity. I don’t think I will ever know.
However, I would like to believe (for now) that whatever is brewing between Upen and Karishma is true and will last longer than the show. But reports suggest that Upen is soon going to exit the house. So their on-screen love story might end soon too. What I do know is that any season of Bigg Boss is incomplete without its fair share of some romance. And this year, Karishma and Upen seem to be doing the needful. Here’s to the duo!
