Mumbai: As per the sources close to the popular Jodi of Nach Baliye 7 – Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna who were allegedly accused of unfair tactics on the dance reality show.
It has been reported that the most popular Jodi of the show – Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna of dance reality show Nach Baliye 7 allegedly adopted unfair means to win tasks. The couple has been consistently scoring high on the show and stand fair chances of actually winning the contest. Yet, this is not going down well with some parties.
A source close to Upen and Karishma slams such reports saying, “Upen and Karishma are a strong couple; they trust each other and share a rare connection. That’s why they have scored so we’ll on all compatibility tasks. They don’t need to resort to any sort of unfair tactics. And they definitely don’t need to cheat.”
The contestants of the dance show also claimed that Upen has been storing the answers to his compatibility tasks in his cell phone, which was found on the sets. “Upen was given permission to keep the phone with him as his mother (who stays in the UK) is not keeping well and so he could keep a check on his mother’s health condition,” the source reveals, elaborating further, “Upen forgot to hand over the phone before getting on to the stage and kept his phone under a mat to avoid any misunderstanding. Somehow the phone was found and he was accused of cheating. Upen had already given his answers before his phone was found, so the question of him cheating other contestants doesn’t arise.
The couple hasn’t won any in the last three weeks. So if they were cheating then why haven’t they been winning week in and out? “Perhaps some contestants with vested interests are spreading all this negativity about the considering their huge popularity on the show and trying to sabotage their successful run on the show and colour the judge’s minds to frame an opinion on Upen and Karishma. The same people have also been saying bad things about Upen and Karishma claiming that they are a reality couple and not a real one,” the source reveals.
The source further adds, “Upen and Karishma never anticipated such humongous and positive response from their fans. In fact, a popular entertainment website also labeled the Upen and Karishma the most popular Jodi on the dance show.”
