Actor Upen Patel is currently creating a stir on the extended series of reality TV show Bigg Boss. Upen, a late entry to Bigg Boss Halla Bol, instantly made headlines by asking fellow contestant Karishma Tanna to marry him.
A report in DNA quotes a source as saying, "Upen and Karishma were sitting on the bed and chatting, when suddenly Upen caught hold of her hand and told her that he will put a ring on her finger the moment they are out of the house. He told Karishma that he has always liked her, irrespective of whether she was at her best or worst behavior. He also said that he doesn't care about her past."
The proposal comes despite the fact that Karishma has repeatedly mentioned the fact that she is in a relationship with restaurateur Rushabh Choksi. It didn't seem to put Upen off, who also reportedly made her a present of a perfume.
Karishma has apparently asked for some time to respond to Upen's proposal.
Upen re-entered the Bigg Bouse house in dramatic fashion on January 12 - in a coffin, which was also how he left after being eliminated on January 1, 2015.
Bigg Boss Halla Bol is the bonus to the eighth season of the reality show and is being hosted by director Farah Khan who replaced superstar Salman Khan.
