MODEL turned TV star Asim Riaz has got himself an incredible fan following globally after his stunning appearance on Bigg Boss 13. One of his most devoted admirers is Meenu from New Delhi.
Eastern Eye caught up with the super fan to find out more.
What connected you to Asim?
I started liking Asim because of the small acts of kindness done by him for others in Bigg Boss 13. Also, he stopped others from violent acts and showed sensibility in tough situations.
What made you a super fan?
During his Bigg Boss 13 stint, Asim was not a big name but was targeted and harassed continuously. His zeal to rise up, not lose hope, be motivated and smile through the difficulties made me resolve to support him more.
Tell us about something super you have done for Asim?
I stayed away from social media, but joined Twitter to support Asim and am sticking around for him. Asim may be coming to Delhi in April. I might even participate in the event he will be attending, which will be hilarious as I have never tried modelling.
What has been your most memorable moment?
There are many magical moments on Bigg Boss 13, including his amazing performance during a task where he had to endure spices being thrown at him from all sides. Another one was when he sacrificed his captaincy for another contestant (Arti Singh) so she could have a letter sent from her mother. These were emotional moments.
What do you love about Asim?
Asim is admired for his strength and grit, but what I love about him is his kindness and forgiving attitude. He doesn’t keep grudges and believes in forgiveness.
Which quality in Asim do you most relate to?
I most relate to Asim’s can-do attitude. He is optimistic and believes in getting up after falling. This is what everyone has to do. I want to be able to do that too.
Why do you love being a super fan?
Asim has just started on the road to stardom. Being his super fan, I was able to live this journey with him during Bigg Boss and will continue living this journey until he becomes a superstar and even after that. It is the best feeling in the world to see someone you love so much and support reach great heights. These super feelings can only be experienced by super fans.
