    Bigg Boss 15: Simba Nagpal defends pushing Umar Riaz to the pool, has this to say about the 'atankwadi' comment

    Simba Nagpal was the first contestant to be evicted this week. He was at the Bottom 6 and the top 5 were asked to save one contestant each. No one had taken his name and he was sent back in a coffin. Simba's journey had its own share of controversies, especially when he pushed Umar Riaz into the pool, or had reportedly called him an 'atankwadi'. Now, the TV actor has opened up about it.

    Talking about pushing Umar into the pool, Simba said, “If I talk about pushing him in the pool, it wasn’t intentional. I always considered him a friend and had discussed with him that my only weak point is my mother and if anyone says anything against her then I lose my calm. Despite knowing that when he abused my mother, my reaction was natural as I don’t think anyone can hear anything against their mother."

    Opening up about the atankwadi comment, Simba said he doesn't remember saying it and added, "I literally don’t remember that. But if he felt that I told him that, then it was about his actions - he would get physical and hurt people. But if people connected that to religion then it is their immaturity and foolishness. However, I don’t honestly remember saying this."

    Simba had also been accused of being lazy and sleeping most of the times. Talking about it, he said, “There were two types of tasks in the house, one that was given by Bigg Boss and the other that people created within themselves. In the tasks that were assigned by Bigg Boss, my attempt had always been to give more than a hundred percent. I have never been lazy there. But yes, I have been lazy in instances where I felt that unintentional arguments were being made, or where there was no reason to fight at all. I knew they were not organic and were only done to be seen on the show. If the audience wants to see me act, then they can see me in reel shows, but if they want to see me in a reality show, they should see how I am in reality - calm and patient."
