Slated to act in an action film, Upen is currently on a strict diet and nothing beats home-cooked food when it comes to this says the actor. "I am slated to do a highoctane action film after this show. I am on a strict diet to maintain my physique and stamina to be ready for the action scenes later. Given the format of the show, I wasn't too sure if my dietary requirements will be met. Karishma knows that I take my fitness seriously. And home-cooked food is the only foolproof solution," Upen told TOI in a recent interview.
Karishma and Upen, who met and fell in love on the controversial reality show, Bigg Boss 8 are currently contesting in Nach Baliye, the celebrity dance reality show this season.
The couple are going strong and the report also says Upen is addresing Karishma's mother as 'mom' off late out of respect. "I call her mum out of respect. I feel every man should respect his better half's parents as his own," he told the leading daily.
