'Bigg Boss' fame Asim Riaz attacked, shares video of injuries
Former Bigg Boss contestant and model Asim Riaz has sustained multiple injuries after he was allegedly attacked by some unknown persons. The incident took place on Wednesday night while Asim (27) was riding his bicycle on the streets. He shared a video on social media to inform fans about the ordeal, showing his injuries from the said attack. Here's more on this.
In a series of clips posted to Instagram Stories, Asim said, "I was cycling right now. I had some guys coming in on the bike and hit me from behind. Not from the front." He went on to show injuries that he sustained on his legs, arms and back. "Everything is cool. I still don't give up," Asim told his 3.8 million followers.
After the videos surfaced on social media last night, Asim's fans expressed their anger over the incident, and prayed for his speedy recovery. Many also requested the model to file a police complaint about the incident. Apparently, Asim has already filed a complaint as a "Police" sign was visible in the background of his video, as noticed by some fans.
Asim found enormous fame through his stint with Bigg Boss 13, where he became the first runner-up. In an earlier interview, he said, "I have been through a lot of mess in my life, but I used to feel something will eventually work out. I didn't even have the money to hire a taxi to go for an audition... and I would walk (sic)."
Separately, on the work front, Asim is all set to feature in singer Arijit Singh's new music video, Dil Ko Maine Di Kasam, alongside Bigg Boss co-contestant and girlfriend Himanshi Khurana. The music video will be out on August 10. The duo has previously featured in popular music videos such as Kalla Sohna Nai and Khayal Rakhya Kar.
