    Asim Riaz started his journey on Bigg Boss 13 as the "vanilla" boy, flaunting his perfectly chiselled body and rapping skills.

    However, with his constant verbal spats with the other housemates, Asim Riaz gradually became more famous as the angry young lad of "Bigg Boss".

    Asim Riaz, after entering Bigg Boss 13 house, first caught attention when he got into a fight with fellow housemate Paras Chhabra. It all started when co-contestant Mahira Sharma ended up calling Asim her "brother", because both of them hail from Jammu and Kashmir, at the launch of the show in September 2019.

    Other male contestants too advised Asim Riaz not to let Mahira Sharma call him her brother as then he could romance her in the show. Paras advised him to channel his anger, and in no time, they got into a heated argument, during which Paras said he would slap Asim.

    Within few days, Asim Riaz befriended Aarti Singh, Shehnaz Kaur Gill and Sidharth Shukla, who earlier bonded quite well!

    From being called as the 'guy-next-door', Asim Riaz soon gained the tag as the 'quitter' since he gave up in the initial task themed on a hospital.

    Asim Riaz's metamorphosis from that phase, when he was dubbed "vanilla" boy, to the "angry young man" of the Bigg Boss 13 house stunned the audience and the housemates alike.

    In another instance, Asim Riaz was also seen behaving erratically after co-contestant Paras Chhabra hurled abuses at him after the snakes and ladder task.

    Asim Riaz slowly turned out to be a warrior in the show. He is not talking to his once close friend Sidharth Shukla, after a fight over multiple and countless issues.

    The angry young man of "Bigg Boss 13", Asim Riaz, even turned loverboy for ex-contestant Himanshi Khurana. He went down on one knee to propose marriage to her in one of the episodes.

    However, Asim Riaz got friend-zoned. But, he has not lost his hopes yet!

    Well, just a few days away from its finale, Asim Riaz again caught everyone's attention when he got Hollywood star John Cena rooting for his victory. After posting a picture of Asim on Instagram without any caption, Cena once again shared a picture of Asim. The second time, the image had the hashtag 'Asim Riaz For The Win' written on it.

    Cena's post might just have helped Riaz by garnering some votes in his favour on Bigg Boss 13. In fact, Cena's attention might have a positive impact on Asim's struggling career once he gets back into the normal world from the show.
