Umar Riaz calls Geeta Kapur's comment on his profession in Bigg Boss 'below the belt', adds 'that really hurt'
Umar Riaz has now spoken at length about Geeta Kapur's comments on his profession. He also added that it was just Salman Khan, the host of Bigg Boss 15, who had the right to bash him.
Many of the ardent fans of Bigg Boss 15 felt that Umar Riaz's eviction was not justified and he deserved to at least go to the finale, if not win the season. It was said that he received fewer votes from the audience after a violent episode with Pratik Sehajpal . In fact, Geeta Kapur who had come as a guest in Bigg Boss severely bashed him and even made an underhand comment on his profession that did not go well with any of his fans. Now, he has reacted to it.
Talking to Pink villa, Umar said, “We don't know each other. A ny guest who have come in the house, they might say that your game is not right, you gotta buck up or this and that. It's OK. Only Salman ( Khan , show host) sir can bash me left and right. That's his job. I can listen to abuses also from him because I have grown up seeing him. But anyone else talking about that is not justified."
He also said that he did not try to talk it out with her and felt that no other guest had made any personal attacks. He added, “What Geeta ma'am did was that without knowing about me… I don't know if she even watches Bigg Boss as well and how she was briefed…but she directly went on my profession and how that was inherent in my nature. She just saw how I did the task and targeted my profession as a doctor, that she would never see me as a doctor or a surgeon. So that was really below the belt, that really hurt."
Geeta Kapur had told him on the show, "I will never want to be treated by someone with an aggression like yours. Mere liye woh darr baitha hai kyunki aap aapa kho dete hai, aapko samajh mein nahi aata aap kya kar rahe hai aur mere liye (I am scared because you lose your mind, you don’t realise what you are doing and for me), it’s a very disturbing fact that you are in a profession that needs a calm mind.”
