Umar Riaz is a qualified surgeon and is currently also trying to find his foot in showbiz. During his chat with Salman Khan, Umar reiterated that it was always his dream to have a career in showbiz and he is only working harder to pursue that. Umar entered the Bigg Boss house amid a lot of speculations and rumours that his brother Asim Riaz perhaps helped him to get inside. Many questioned it because this season essentially had been about celebrities entering the house. However, in a chat with Bollywood Bubble, Umar refuted all the talks and clarified that he is his own person and while he sees Asim as his biggest support, his journey inside the house has been his own.

Umar Riaz clarified, “What I am doing inside the Bigg Boss house is something only the colors team will know because they approached me. Yes, I wanted the show too but I never asked anyone or my brother to recommend me. If you ever get an opportunity to speak to him again, please ask him if I ever asked my brother to even recommend mt name to any label or anything. No!” Umar added that when he got a call from Bigg Boss too, he did not even inform Asim. “To be honest, I did not even inform Asim when I got the call for the show because I did not want anyone to suggest or prepare me. I wanted to experience it all Alone and know how the interviews are conducted. In fact, after the interview when I told Asim, he was surprised and he asked me what all was asked. He then told me he is sure I am in for the season.”

“But, in all this the fact remains that my journey inside will be different, how I react to things, how much relationships mould will be completely mine,” Umar Riaz shared.
