In parts of the Hindi Belt, people do pronounce रुपया like रुपैया. I know for a fact that no one ever says रुपया like rupee like "roo-pee". No self-respecting Hindi speaker, in their right mind, will ever say "roo-pee". You'll hear रुपया as "rūpya" or "rupai" and it doesn't matter if it's a "ek rupai" or "do rupai", singular or plural.
