Popular actor, Asim Riaz rose to fame after he bagged the title of runner-up of the most controversial reality show, Bigg Boss 13, while Sidharth Shukla won the show's title. During their stint in the show, we witnessed Asim and Sidharth getting involved in a physical fight, but the duo remained good friends. Recently, Asim Riaz sat down for an interview and claimed that Bigg Boss 13 was biased towards him and the show’s winner, Sidharth Shukla.
In a candid interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Asim Riaz made a huge cry about Bigg Boss 13 being biased and alleged that late actor, Sidharth Shukla was a rigged winner. Talking about the same, he stated that the makers opened online voting before they announced the winner and let the audience decide the winner. The model clearly stated that the makers didn’t want him to win Bigg Boss 13 and added:
“Mere dauraan unhone kya kiya, because they didn’t want me to win, haanji bhai aaj hum online voting khol denge 15 min ke liye, jitana hai jitao jisko. Come on man, just say you don’t want to make me win, it’s okay. You made it that obvious that we had to believe that you did whatever and I was like it’s okay.”

Asim Riaz's controversial remark broke the internet, and the clip from his explosive interview went viral in split seconds. While the Bigg Boss 13 runner-up's fans are lauding and hailing him for exposing the reality of the Bigg Boss makers, on the other hand, Sidharth’s fans asked him to move on. Meanwhile, Shehnaaz Gill’s brother, Shehbaz also took an indirect dig at Asim and tweeted:
"Some people still don't understand sher ek hi hai aur ek hi rehta hai."
Asim Riaz's statement hurt the sentiments of millions of fans of Sidharth Shukla, and they started bashing the model for not accepting his defeat in a positive way. Meanwhile, others are waiting for Shehnaaz Gill to react to Asim's claims about Sidharth being a rigged winner. Sana, who is well-known for speaking her heart out without even thinking, is loved by her and Sidharth Shukla's fans alike, and they are waiting for her to respond. However, it looks like Shehnaaz doesn't pay heed to anything negative after Sidharth’s loss, and she's keeping mum.

"Shehnaaz will maintain her dignified silence and will never react to such claims as she knows her fans love Sidharth Shukla extremely and they are enough to lash out at his haters or anyone who will speak wrong after he is gone. Shehnaaz will never indulge herself in any controversy as she now believes that your silence is the strongest weapon you can hold to win battles. Shehnaaz is a changed person after Sidharth."
