Dance reality sweethearts, Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna, dropped in to the Team MissMalini HQs recently to answer all YOUR burning questions :) I know you love them so I made sure to pass on all your queries, and I even got them to play a compatibility quiz! Watch the whole thing right here! xoxo
Does the silver stone ring that Karishma wears in her right hand mean anything? – Anaya Ali
It’s actually a blue sapphire. It’s for good health and good wealth. My mama gifted it to me, so I’m wearing it for her.
How does it feel seeing so much love from friends and fans? – Priyanka
Karishma: Amazing. We really feel like we are blessed.
What was your funniest moment during Nach Baliye 7? – Jasmine
Upen: I don’t think there was any funny moment…
Karishma: I did have one during the Daily Punchanama. One challenge we did together, which was the donut challenge – that was a very funny one for me.
Upen: It was funny for her because I fell over.
Karishma: No, we both fell over. It was a challenge where he had to take me on his back and run. Then the host said ‘ready, steady, go’ – and in one second we both fell down.
Upen: Let me explain that properly! It was a love challenge we had to do, and I told Karishma I have a strategy.
Karishma: He asked me to jump higher. I think he forgot I’m tall enough.
Upen: I told her jump higher because I have a lower back problem from lifting her. So I started to go, and Karishma jumped higher, and because she’s so tall, it felt like she’d jumped around my neck. And then I fell down in the sand! But I got up, and made her jump back up again, and I don’t know how – but we came second.
What’s your favourite holiday destination? – Karishma Tanna FC
Where are you celebrating Upen’s birthday? – Nitu
Karishma: London, maybe? We haven’t thought about it.
Describe your Nach journey in one word? – Nishi
Karishma: Roller-coaster ride.
What will you miss most about reality TV? – Nishi Jain
Upen: I don’t think I’ll miss much, because Karishma’s always been with me and she’s still with me.
