Bigg Boss 13 runner-up Asim Riaz’s brother Umar Riaz has come out in support of Bigg Boss 14 contestant Eijaz Khan after Jasmin Bhasin accused him of ‘physically intimidating her’ during a task. During the Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar episode on Sunday, she said that the actor got too close for her comfort and tried to intimidate her.
However, Umar seconded Eijaz’s behaviour and wrote on Twitter, “The way @KhanEijaz explained himself on the baseless allegation on him was comendable. He is a very genuine and a mature guy i feel . Task has to be done with full enthusiasm and will. No where i saw him intimidating anyone. You have a problem getting close, back off! #bb14.”

Jasmin had told Salman on Sunday’s episode that she had thought Eijaz to be ‘mature’ and nice but was taken aback by his dominating nature during the task. She said, “Hum task karte hai, kheencha-taani sab karte hai, but humein pata hota hai kaunsi line cross nahi karni hai (We do tasks, we all push and pull, but we know which line not to cross).”
When Eijaz said that he was merely playing the game, she did not accept his clarification and said, “Toh agar yeh unka game tactic bhi tha, yeh unki personality ka woh roop dikhata hai ki woh game mein ek aurat ko physically intimidate kar denge, woh line cross kar denge jahaan a woman would get uncomfortable (Even if it was a tactic for the game, it shows his personality that he would physically intimidate a woman for the sake of a game and cross a line to make her feel uncomfortable).”
However, her allegations did not sit well with host Salman Khan either who said, “This is a game. If I am uncomfortable with something, I will move back. Aapke paas option hai (You have the option) to move back. Agar aapke move back hone ke baad ya bolne ke baad (If even after you move back or voice your discomfort), he is still coming for you, then it is a problem.” He added that it was ‘in (her) mind’.
