Last week, Umar Riaz, brother of ‘Bigg Boss 13’ finalist Asim Riaz was evicted from ‘Bigg Boss 15’ on the basis of his violent behaviour towards Pratik Sehajpal. Even after securing ‘Ticket to finale,’ Umar got evicted, and his exit met with an outrage on the digital world. Netizens showered support to Umar and considered his eviction as ‘unfair.’
Now, the evicted contestant was spotted for the first time after his show’s stint, and the media captured and asked several questions to Umar. One of the paparazzi asked him that people considered his exit an injustice towards him, to which Umar said, “Mere ko bolne ki zaroorat nahi hai… aap sabko pata hai kya hua hai.” However, he admitted the public’s unconditional support by adding, “Main khushnaseeb hu ki itna pyaar mila hai. Mujhe lagta hai ki Allah ka reham hai aur aap sab ka pyaar hai.”
Watch Umar’s reaction on his eviction
On Tuesday, 11 January, Asim was spotted by the paparazzi who chased him for his comments about Umar being thrown out of the house. While talking to the media, Asim said, “Obviously unfair tha because pehle bhi dhakke maar raha tha koi. I think a lot of contestants jo bhi the Bigg Boss me, sab ne ek dusre ko maara dhakke but tab koi nahi nikla. Par Umar ne kiya aisa toh unfortunately usko nikaalna pada.”
When asked about other other contestants showing ‘bal ka prayog’ on the reality show, Asim mentioned, “Exactly Pratik ne, Karan ne bhi (dhakke diye hain). Par us time agar fair decision lena tha toh us time nikalna chahiye tha. Is time Umar ko nikaal diya. Like I said, uski game bahot strong thi. Jab aap dekho Weekend Ka Vaar toh actually unhone bataya hai ki Umar kitna strong hai aur woh baakiyon ki game kaise strong nahi hone de raha hai.”
Defending his brother’s action, Asim added “Umar ka toh dhakka kuch dikha bhi nahi, and the thing was woh instigated hua tha usse, fir uska reaction tha. Dil jeeta hai toh aur kya chahiye.” Asim even referred to his defeat in the finale of ‘Bigg Boss 13’ saying that it’s not the first time that an unfair decision has been taken in the show.
