"I was so sad when I was told to leave"
Bigg Boss 15 contestant Umar Riaz released his single ‘Mera Suffer’ on February 25, 2022.
Shot in the deserts of the Middle East, Umar has debuted as a singer and rapper with the song.
Roach Killa has not only produced the single but also co-written the song with Umar.
He has picked an interesting title, given from the sound, it talks about his Bigg Boss 15 journey and translates into the suffering he faced.
The surgeon-turned-actor had an eventful journey on the reality show.
Elder brother of Asim Riaz, Umar was continuously compared with him.
He was tagged as the aggressive one while many in the show had physically attacked each other.
Umar was evicted for breaking the house rule.
Many of his fans felt that Umar was put down time and again by host Salman Khan, and his profession was even made fun of.
In his single, Umar seems to have responded to the criticism.
The music video opens with him saying that ‘he’s done it, and his fans have also done it’.
Umar also talks about how his skill as a doctor was doubted and he was portrayed as a monster.
He goes on to say while he was told that his eviction was the audiences’ decision, he now knows the truth.
Umar even points out that no action was taken when he was pushed into the pool, and calls Karan Kundrra and Rajiv Adatia his only true friends.
The music video ends with him saying that winners come and go but he was the one who won hearts.
Talking about his eviction, Umar Riaz had earlier said: “I was so sad when I was told to leave, especially after being tagged as a violent, aggressive doctor.
“However, it was so overwhelming to see people shower me with so much love.
“That helped me to come out of the zone and gather myself up. It was truly a happy feeling.”
He addressed that when he was to enter the house, he was briefed that everyone was on the same platform:
“They told me to be myself however when I did that I was attacked time and again in reference to my profession.
“Never has anyone spoken about them being actors?”
“I have been working throughout the pandemic as a frontline worker but everything was demeaned on the show.
“It was so upsetting that I sometimes even questioned whether I did the right thing by being on the show.”
