Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel, who met on Bigg Boss 8 and fell in love, have now officially decided to part ways, according to reports.
Reportedly, when Karishma entered Bigg Boss 8, she claimed to be in love with Rishabh Choksi. However, in the house, Upen and Karishma went from being friends to something more. They came out and professed their love.
The duo also participated in Nach Baliye 7, the couple dance reality show where Upen even officially proposed to Karishma and gave her an engagement ring. He also introduced her to his family and the two apparently went on several trips together.
When there were rumours that the couple had broken up, Karishma released a statement saying, “It’s normal for couples to fight and have disagreement but that doesn’t mean we’ve broken up”.
But now Upen released a statement on his Twitter handle saying, “Me and Karishma have both agreed to part ways. Thank you for all your love.”
He further added, “Too much has come to light & shown its true colours. Love is never easy and when a certain foundation is broken it’s impossible to move forward.”
While Karishma posted, “When you find no solution to a problem, it’s probably not a problem to be solved. But, rather a truth to be accepted.”
The buzz is that the duo allegedly split due to professional issues. Karishma was apparently receiving a number offers, while Upen apparently didn’t see much success. This often led to arguments and hence they allegedly decided to call it off.
