Upen Patel

Actor and fashion icon Upen Patel, who has been appreciated for his dancing skills at this year’s season of the dance reality show, ‘Nach Baliye’, will soon be seen doing a dance number in a popular TV soap.

The talented actor, who enjoys a huge fan following had already finished shooting for an item song and is ecstatic with the way it has turned out. He told Absolute India, “This was my first item number for TV, and it was great fun. I did those typical Bollywood dance steps. I play myself on the show. Dance numbers add drama to a story, and they’re great entertainment.”

The actor who has just finished shooting for a Telugu film says, “Besides the Telugu movie, there are two other movies on the floors. Film actors are very lucky, as performing for TV is tough. Television actors shoot for 17 hours a day, seven days a week. I am very busy with my films. It’s impossible to give time to TV, except for reality TV shows, which don’t demand long hours.”
