This 5 ft. 9-inch tall girl acted in TV Advertisements of various brands like Lifebuoy and Nirma. But her portrayal of the cute dim-witted Indu in KSBKBT is what made her a household name. She was one of TV Czarina Ekta Kapoor’s blue-eyed girls.

She loves to entertain audiences of all ages and has proved her prowess in playing both positive and negative characters in her shows.

 Filmy Karishma

She has acted in a few Hindi and Kannada movies like Dosti, I Am Sorry Mathe Banne  Preethsona and the super-hit Grand Masti. She is working on another film with Sunny Leone named Tina and Lolo.

Controversy Queen

Karishma’s second name has been controversy. She has dated and allegedly been linked with celebs like Eijaz Khan, Hanif Hilal, Bappa Bappi Lahiri, Rushabh Choksi (Owner of the famous pub Escobar in Mumbai) and now she has confirmed that she is dating fellow Bigg Boss Contestant Upen Patel. Many thought that she unceremoniously forgot about her boyfriend outside the Bigg Boss House, Rushabh, when she started dating Upen Patel. Even while inside the house she showed her aggressive behavior and her unparalleled love for make-up. She even pitted herself against Salman Khan during one of the episodes.

But, as they say, all’s well that ends well. Karishma stated that her feelings for Upen were not fake.  They have proved the same by participating in Nach Baliye 7, and it’s no surprise that they are the highest paid couple on the show!
