"Nach Baliye 7" couple Upen Patel-Karishma Tanna has together weaved a rollercoaster love story. And even after being scorned at for putting up an act, the two didn't give up. Now, they reportedly have taken their relationship a step forward by getting engaged on the dance reality show.

"After their act was over, Upen proposed Karishma on stage and they both exchanged rings," Telly Chakkar quoted a source as saying.

Since there has been no official announcement on the development yet, it can be counted as a mere speculation.

While this, if true, could be a major TRP moment, Upen-Karishma have apparently managed to popularise themselves and the show by resorting to unfair means.

After Rashami Desai was accused of having faked an ankle injury to perform at an overseas show, the popular pair has been under the scanner for cheating.

"They claim that Upen has been storing the answers to his compatibility tasks in the cell phone, which was found on the sets. He would leave the phone in a pre-decided location, away from prying eyes and Karishma would access it to figure out the clues to the given tasks," a source told Mid Day.

Apparently, what made the other contestants suspicious of their well-crafted lie was Upen's frequent trips to the washroom and also the fact that despite knowing each other only for a few months they scored more than the ones who have been married or have known one another for long.

In other news, this isn't the first time that the Upen popped the big question. In "Bigg Boss 8", as part of a fun activity, the "36 China Town" actor picked a ring, slipped it on her finger promising to replace it with a 'real' one soon.

So, has the moment arrived or is it just for the show? Only time will tell.
