He said, “Obviously, it happens. I just entered as a normal guy. What I heard is that they wanted me for just two–three weeks. They never wanted me to go ahead any further, given there were big names involved in the season like Shamita, Karan, Afsana, Akasa, Jay, Tejasswi, etc. They have excelled best in their field”
He further said, “When I entered the house, I saw everyone and realised that I don’t belong here. Just a week before, I was working in a hospital and then suddenly, I was on this reality show. To watch and experience are two different things”.
Umar mentioned, "Many of the contestants were charging crores, so obviously, Bigg Boss will be partial to them. I was no one. One mistake, and I was thrown out of the house."
Well, there is no doubt that Umar has always been vocal about his feelings about the reality show.
