Well, no one ever imagined that the one love story to come out of this season would be of Namastey London actor, Upen Patel, and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi star, Karishma Tanna.
Since the beginning of the show, Karishma had maintained her “I-have-a-boyfriend-outside” status quite openly; and Upen, like we said before, had flirted with almost every other contestant out there. But, slowly Upen and Karishma’s friendship and proximity grew to an extent that Upen came back on the show after his eviction. He just wanted a chance to declare his feelings for Karishma and to woo her off her feet. And, by the end of the show, he quite successfully did that as well.
Well, after the end of the show, their fans even gave this jodi a cute nickname- UpMa!

While on BB8, during a task, Upen had bought a ring for Karishma, and committed to her that after they get out of the house, he will soon replace the ring with a real one. And, it was on NB7 that he fulfilled the promise. Did you know what Karishma had bought for Upen in that very task on BB8? An “I Love My Girlfriend” t-shirt! Talk about expressing feelings, right?
Upen had planned a secret proposal for Karishma, in a true-to-their-profession filmy-style. Complete with placards, flowers, getting down on one knee, and a solitaire, he officially proposed Karishma for marriage. And, moved by his sweet gesture and his commitment, the Grand Masti actress, said 'Yes'!
