Umar Riaz, who created a close bond with Karan Kundrra in Big Boss 15, said that Tejasswi Prakash was envy of their friendship. Karan and Tejasswi fall for each other on the show and are now dating.
In an interview, Umar was playfully asked about being in a ‘Ternion’ with Karan and Tejasswi. Umar said that althoughhe was never jealous of Tejasswi, she was envy of his close bond with Karan.
Talking to Bollywood Hungama, Umar said, “I was never jealous of Tejasswi. They used to spend a lot of time. Karan used to spend all day with Tejasswi. I never thought, ‘he is not giving time to me.’ It was fine because I wanted him to grow his relationship with her. But I think Tejasswi might have been jealous of the bond because during tasks, my priority would be Karan and somehow, Karan’s priority would be me. I think some kind of jealousy might be there because after I came out, I saw Tejasswi talking to Karan and I didn’t like how she spoke about me… He supported me in the game more than her and she couldn’t digest it.”
Umar also opened up about his close bond with Karan and said that it is ‘True’. We attach because we both are from North India and we have that dialect also… We really Attahed, the bond grew everyday and the kind support we showed it to each other. He was like my big brother, he tells where I am wrong and I tell him where I am wrong. The bond grew with the dancing as well, we both were horrible dancers. The bond was really true and unmixed,” he said.
