Mumbai: Recently, fans of Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna were surprised to learn that the couple had signed a Chinese film with a popular production company. The couple had announced this news on an app that specialises in breaking news and later revealed that the news was false.
Upen informs, “The developers of this app approached us with the idea. For every download of the app, and click on the story’s link, the company would donate money to a charitable cause of our choice. I opted for a lesser-known NGO, Paras that works for women empowerment.”
When asked Upen if he was worried about this trick backfiring, he says, “Not at all. The moment you click on the news link, it says the news is false and an amount will be donated to the NGO. On Twitter, both of us got a good response from our fans. Being a celebrity, if you are able to raise funds for charity, then why not?”
As there were over a lakh downloads, a considerable amount of money was donated to the NGO. Upen is excitedly looking forward to Nach Baliye 7 finale and stand fair chances of winning the dance reality show along with his ladylove and dance partner Karishma Tanna.
