rajiv adatia, umar riaz, bigg boss 15

Bigg Boss 15 brought about many shocking introductions and eviction too. One being of popular contestant Umar Riaz who was a strong contender for the trophy. The reason the popular contestant was evicted was due to his aggressive behaviour during a task. Umar’s exit left his fans and friends in shock. They took to social media to lend support to the handsome doctor. One of them being Rajiv Adatia.

During an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Shamita Shetty’s brother Rajiv Adatia was asked his reaction to Umar Riaz’ eviction from the show. He revealed his views on Riaz’ shocking eviction from the show and his bond with the doctor.


Rajiv  said, “When I was on the show everybody was aggressive, except for me.  I mean no one ever touched me. I am the kind of person who always feels that things can be sorted out by talking. and I told scream shout jo bhi karna hai karo but I always believed that we can sort out things by talking rather than being aggressive. Now Umar was shown as being aggressive but he was not. I mean everyone on the show was aggressive. He was but everybody was aggressive on the show. Umar is a sweet person and funny person. and I wish that side of him was more portrayed.

On Umar as a friend, Rajiv said, “Honestly the most loyal. Like the way he had my back inside the house and when I went back in the house. I mean last time when we were together. I had told him, said listen, “We are in a show and Shamita is my priority and yours is Karan and that is fine by me because you have been his friends and I have come later. We had an understanding that we will not fight. Because I am a friend and I understand you. I will not judge you on the show”. That’s where we became best friends because even if he does not choose me I am not going to feel bad. I am not going to say why did you choose them and not me as we had an understanding.  I was very upset when Umar was evicted, His eviction was unfair. I think he would have won. I think a new star is born – Umar, and I am very proud of him.

I made a life long relationship with Umar Riaz and Rashami Desai in Bigg Boss 15. I have a motto “I will not have a friendship which I can’t keep it. I am a very in-touch person and like to keep in touch with everybody. Mine Umar and Rashami’s is a lifelong friendship,” he added
