Bigg Boss 16 Day 2: Abdu Rozik reveals he was body-shamed in school, says 'I'm so small, my life was very bad'


Abdu Rozik, who is currently seen in the 16th season of Salman Khan's Bigg Boss, recently opened up about being bullied because of his size. The 19-year-old singer was born in Tajikistan and has performed with some of the most reputed artists including AR Rahman, French Montana, Will I AM and Redone, over the past two years.

Speaking about his struggles, Abdu shared, "My life was very bad. My house was open and it used to get flooded. I never had a good house." He then revealed that being small has always been a difficult situation for him. "I'm small so I never used to go to class and I never got books because they called me small." Abdu also revealed that when people laugh at him he tries to ignore them and thinks that it is wrong.

Talking about his Bigg Boss participation, Abdu had earlier said in a press statement, “I am excited and nervous but I can’t wait to embark on the next chapter of my life with Bigg Boss 16.

People always bad mouthed me as being the unfortunate child of God and mocked me for my disability throughout my childhood but now look where I have reached today. It’s all thanks to the grace of god, my fans and who have believed in me when the world didn’t and taught me how to count my blessings every single day."
