They might have hit headlines earlier this year for their public displays of affection on a reality show, but actor Upen Patel doesn't even want to talk much about his relationship with actor Karishma Tanna, now.
"I am not comfortable talking about my personal life," says Upen when asked if he's looking forward to working with Karishma again.
"For me, a project is more about the story than the cast. I am on a lookout for good scripts where I can grow as an actor," he says.
While Upen and Karishma confessed to their feelings for each other on TV, Upen is in no hurry to tie the knot and wants to take things as they come.
"Marriage does not happen in a day. I feel that time is the essence of any situation. Perhaps the audience wants to see more of us (after the show), but I cannot predict the future," he says.
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old is very satisfied when it comes to his personal as well as his professional life.
"Things are great and I am taking each day as it comes. We (he and Karishma) are happy to be with each other. I feel that this is the best time of my life," he says, adding, "I am mulling over some Bollywood projects at the moment and also concentrating on modelling. I feel I am getting the best of both worlds."
