Doctor turned model-actor Umar Riaz entered Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss 15 house with a bang. Right from its premiere day, the actor has been hogging all the limelight. Now, inside the house, Umar has been making his presence felt on the show in one or another way. Be it his ugly spat with Pratik Sehajpal, or his growing proximity with contestant Tejasswi Prakash, Umar has been grabbing headlines, of late. The actor, before entering the house, shared with us his views on the theme ‘Sankat In Jungle’ and how he would survive under extreme conditions.
Umar Riaz shared, “This time the concept is different. I know I will have to live in tents or open spaces, but I would say that I’m a guy from the mountains, I’ve lived in the wilderness. I am that adventurous. I used to go on treks often. As my father was mostly posted away from the city he used to take me on such adventures, so that thing is in me to survive in those hard conditions.”
Not to forget, Umar Riaz’s younger brother Asim Riaz was the runner-up of Bigg Boss 13, which was won by the late actor Sidharth Shukla.
Earlier, Umar revealed to us the advice Asim gave him to sustain in the show. He said, “I have never thought of doing Bigg Boss. But when I saw my brother Asim Riaz going to Bigg Boss. And coming into the limelight and how that helped him to change his life. After that, I always thought of doing this reality show and this time it finally happened. Asim told me to do my own thing. And also said zabardasti kisi se pange mat lena. Do make friends but keep yourself first in the game.” Also Read: Bigg Boss 15: Umar Riaz Reveals The Tips And Tricks His Brother Asim Riaz Gave Him Before Entering The Show- EXCLUSIVE
