As it wraps up, we revisit the show, not for its performances but for the controversies which made sure it stayed in the news right till the end.

1.The reel couple: Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel

Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel entered this show as a real life couple but Chetan Bhagat (one of the three judges) tagged them as a reel couple. It was believed that they paired up to be on the show. Both are evidently good dancers but it is speculated that they met on another show and started dating. To put an end to the rumours, they got engaged on the show and are thinking about getting married soon. Well, we'll get to know soon enough.

2.The fake couple: Sana Saeed and Dipesh Patel

There have been two kinds of rumours when it comes to Sana Saeed and her partner Dipesh Patel. First, buzz said the Student of the Year star is faking a relationship with "good friend" Dipesh Patel, who happens to be a choreographer, to be on the show. The other rumour was that there were auditions held to select a partner for Sana and they finally locked on Dipesh. Well, even we don't know what to believe.

3.The fake injury: Rashmi Desai and Nandish

Rashmi Desai and Nandish have been in news more for their troubled relationship than their performances. Rashmi even revealed personal details of their marriage on the show, and this might just help her garner sympathy votes. But all this happened after she faked an ankle injury and went to LA for a holiday. However, Rashmi was made to apologise for that on national television and the couple managed to stay in the show.

4.The cheating couple: Karishma and Upen

Yet again, Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel came under criticism when they were caught cheating in the love challenge. Apparently, Upen would store answers for the compatibility test on his phone and keep it in a pre-decided place and Karishma would access it. Well, this didn't go on for long as the other contestants noticed and brought it to attention.

5.The couple that left: Shakti Arora and Neha Saxena

Shakti Arora and Neha Saxena walked out of the show midway as the show required a lot of their time and it was getting quite difficult for them to manage. Reports suggested Shakti, who is a lead actor in a popular show on the rival channel, Colors, was forced by the producers of his show to leave Nach Baliye. We do miss watching him on the show.

6.The 'not so funny' hosts: Rithvik Dhanjani and Karan Patel

Everybody involved with this show have got embroiled in controversy and its hosts Rithvik Dhanjani and Karan Patel are no exception. A case was filed against them when a video showed them ridiculing national heroes and making fun of the Constitution and other people seemed to enjoy it. Ekta Kapoor, however, said she had no knowledge of it.

7.Chetan Bhagat

No couple or host has been as controversial as Chetan Bhagat. First, people questioned how can a writer judge a dance show, to which he said that he is a motivational speaker and this show is also about love and relationship, and he can help contestants with that. He also came under criticism for doubting the compatibility between couples and also for his comments that would not only anger the contestants but also the audience. Before the show started, he said he was looking forward to it and hoped he would enjoy the journey as it will help him in his writing. Well, how is the writing coming along Chetan?



Let's hope that the grand finale goes smoothly and the show is able to end without further controversies.
