Ac­tor Kar­ishma Tanna (right) doesn’t give two hoots about what peo­ple say about her per­sonal life. “It feels ter­ri­ble when your per­sonal life be­comes the fo­cus leav­ing ev­ery­thing else be­hind, but you can’t help it. If there’s some­thing ex­cit­ing go­ing on in my per­sonal life, peo­ple will gos­sip about it,” says Kar­ishma, who cre­ated a lot of buzz after she was linked with ac­tor Upen Pa­tel on re­al­ity show Bigg Boss (sea­son 8).

The two didn’t shy away from mak­ing it pub­lic even after the show wrapped up. UpMa, as they were fondly called by their fans, even took their re­la­tion­ship to the next level when they par­tic­i­pated on a dance re­al­ity show, where Upen pro­posed to Kar­ishma on na­tional tele­vi­sion and they got en­gaged. But things turned sour and they soon parted ways.

On whether think­ing about all this up­sets her, Kar­ishma shares, “That’s a part of your life. I don’t know what fu­ture holds, so I live in the present mo­ment. Def­i­nitely, I was hope­ful and positive about a lot of things but if they didn’t hap­pen, there must have been for a rea­son for that. It’s very dif­fi­cult but then you have to move on in life.”

Pic­tures of their Lon­don hol­i­day and their ro­man­tic mo­ments went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia. Ask her why she chose to be so vo­cal about her per­sonal life, Kar­ishma replies by say­ing, it was all in the mo­ment. “What­ever was there be­tween me and Upen was just an ex­ten­sion to what ini­tially started in­side the Bigg Boss house in front of crowd and 145 cam­eras. Oth­er­wise I’ve never been vo­cal about my pri­vate life and if given a chance, I would want to undo ev­ery­thing and keep my per­sonal life my own,” she says. Of late, Upen has been put­ting up a lot of cryp­tic tweets and tag­ging Kar­ishma in them. On be­ing prod­ded about the same, Kar­ishma main­tains a si­lence and says, “Well, I’d just give you a smil­ing re­ac­tion here. I won’t talk about it be­cause I’m happy where I’m.”
