But then, the fans never spared us. Her fan club used to curse me and mine used to do the same to her. Since the fan clubs were ours, there was a misunderstanding that we were doing it on purpose. We didn’t get the time to clarify things and hence, we unfollowed each other”
He further said “We are in a happy place now. Even if we don’t speak to each other, we do keep sending reels. We are in touch, but it is a cordial relation that we have. ”
As far as Karan Kundrra is concerned “ I am in touch with him, but not much with Tejasswi Prakash, just like it was in Bigg Boss. Nothing has changed and we hardly speak”.
He further says “ I am friends with Karan but because of work, we don’t get much time. But we are at a stage where we don’t expect much from each other”.
Well, there is no doubt Umar and Rashami were loved in Bigg Boss and the fans have finally got the answer as to why they unfollowed each other.
