Finding the name of Umar Riaz, brother of Asim Riaz, among the list of contestants for Bigg Boss 15, the thought that Asim would have recommended Umar, popping up in the mind is quite obvious. Well, if you are also thinking on the same lines, it’s time you rethink. Most people don’t actually know that Umar Riaz is a general surgeon who has turned into a model recently. Umar said that it had always been his dream to be a part of the entertainment industry.
Umar revealed that he got an offer for Bigg Boss OTT as well. However he declined as he believes Bigg Boss is meant for TV, rather than the OTTs. Furthermore, Umar expressed his desire of performing and showcasing his talent.
According to him, the makers of Bigg Boss witnessed potential in him through his work and approached him. Putting an end to all speculation, Umar made it clear that Asim never approached the makers of Bigg Boss. Umar however accepted that Asim did share a few valuable tips with him.
Throwing more light on it, Umar said that Asim suggested to him not to copy anyone, and emphasized about being as real as possible, rather than being pretentious. Umar added that Asim asked him to take a stand for fellow participants. Talking about the difference between him and Asim, Umar claims that the profession he belongs to genuinely makes him calmer (as a surgeon).
He further terms himself as a fun-loving and caring guy, though he might get irritated in case someone pokes him. This is one thing he doesn’t like about himself. According to him, both he and Asim have inherited this trait from their father, though they both have the highest respect for their father.
Talking about building a career in the entertainment arena, Umar eyes establishing himself in television and of course film industry. Umar added that he would also remain in touch with his profession. In short, he will maintain both his passion as well as profession. Let us see how that goes!
