Just wondering how long it takes to get approved. I just registered but wondering how long I need to wait?

Ankit, the better a profile is, the faster it will get approved.

 

Your profile shows that you have put no appreciable effort and little thought into establishing your presence on Upwork as a contractor. It is entirely possible that your profile will not be approved at all.

What's with the recent surge in lame, weak, and fake profiles?

Jared, Upwork has always received lame, weak, and fake profiles. But only in recent months did Upwork begin to screen profiles more carefully and reject bad profiles. So we now see unapproved would-be contractors taking to the Forum to ask for advice about how to get approved. So it seems like there is an uptick in bad profiles, but it is actually just increased Forum activity on the subject stemming from Upwork's crackdown.
