Umar Riaz has been eliminated from Bigg Boss 15 after more than four months on the show and just weeks before the finale. His official Instagram page confirmed the report with a heartbreaking message. 

It read as "An end of one journey is the beginning of the next. #UmarArmy @colorstv @endemolshineind @vootselect #umarriaz #umarriazsquad #umarriazinbb15 #umarriazarmy #bb15 #bbonvoot #biggboss15 #colorstv #endemolshine #vootselect #teamumar."

Asim Riaz, Umar's brother and Bigg Boss 13 runner-up, took to Twitter on Friday night and posted that he had done a fantastic job on the reality show, followed by a "love you" message.

Himanshi Khurana, Asim's girlfriend and a contestant on Bigg Boss 13, has blasted the show. "They do what they want to do," she tweeted. 

She further wrote in Hindi that they gather votes and still eliminate the contestants. Or rather, the makers even affect the mental health of the contestants. She praised Umar by tweeting "nicely done."

Himanshi added in another tweet that this is not surprising to her and claimed it happens every season. She again bashed the voting concept, as it's mostly nullified in Bigg Boss nowadays. However, Himanshi lent her support to Umar by writing, "We are with you." 

Asim and Himanshi's tweets confirmed that Umar is no longer a part of Bigg Boss 15. Fans and other celebrities have also come out in favour of Umar, accusing the makers of being unfair and biased.

It's shocking that @realumarriaz was evicted... I'm not sure what the #biggboss goal is, but well played #UmarRiaz," Karanvir Bohra tweeted.

Even though Umar Riaz had a large fan base, how did he get eliminated? asked a shocked fan on Twitter.

For the uninitiated, Umar is a medical doctor. In the Bigg Boss 15 house, he has generated a lot of headlines, mainly with his game style, clashes, and relationship with co-contestant Rashami Desai.

He has been a part of the reality show since day one and has had a huge fan following throughout his stint.
