Ac­tors Upen Pa­tel (right) and Kar­ishma Tanna’s break-up shat­tered many hearts and fans heartily wished that the two got back to­gether. How­ever, it seems that Upen has moved on and is now ready to start over with some­one else.

“I am sin­gle and have al­ways been open about my re­la­tion­ships. If any­one nice comes into my life, it would be fan­tas­tic,” says Upen, who started dat­ing Kar­ishma dur­ing their stint on re­al­ity show Bigg Boss in 2014.

The cou­ple, who dated for two years, parted on a bad note when re­ports about their fights sur­faced. Upen says he un­der­stands the in­ter­est peo­ple have in his love life. “When you get pop­u­lar, your per­sonal life be­comes pub­lic. How­ever, I don’t like to speak much about my per­sonal life. An im­por­tant film has just re­leased and I want peo­ple to fo­cus on that,” says Upen, whose film Ek Haseena Thi Ek Dee­wana Tha has just hit the the­atres.

Be­sides Bigg Boss, Upen and Kar­ishma also par­tic­i­pated in dance re­al­ity show Nach Baliye 7 as a cou­ple. While their fans still want to see them share the screen space to­gether, Upen re­frained from say­ing if they

will ever work to­gether again.

“I can’t con­trol what peo­ple think about me or who I should work with. What I can def­i­nitely con­trol is what I say on a par­tic­u­lar plat­form,” says the 34-year-old ac­tor.
