Umar made a lot of headlines given his roller-coaster ride in Bigg Boss 15. Doctor by profession, Umar is the brother of Bigg Boss 13’s runner-up Asim Riaz.
His fight with Simba Nagpal who pushed him into a swimming pool and called him an ‘aantankwadi‘ was something that revealed the ugly side of the reality show.
The incident did not go down well with Umar’s fans who took to Twitter to voice their concern. `Justice for Umar Riaz’ was trending on social media after the incident.
Later netizens rallied around Umar Riaz after he faced slurs in Bigg Boss. It began during a press meet in Bigg Boss’ house. Karan Kundrra called Umar a ‘gadha’ (donkey). Later Karan Kundrra finally apologized to the J&K doctor-turned-model for calling him names on the show.
