Several popular contestants from the past seasons have made their appearance on Bigg Boss 14. Former contestants such as Sidharth Shukla, Shehnaaz Gill, Rashami Desai, Monalisa, Hina Khan, Gauahar Khan and Kamya Punjabi have graced the show and entertained their fans with their presence. Asim Riaz, an underdog who went to become the first runner-up of Bigg Boss 13, was also invited by the makers of the controversial reality show to make an appearance. But yet again, Asim has refused to be a part of the Weekend Ka Vaar episodes. And it looks like Salman Khan is the reason behind it.
If a report in Telly Chakkar is to be believed, Asim refused the offer as he 'doesn’t want to host the Weekend Ka Vaar without Salman Khan' adding that 'he will come on board if the megastar is present on the show.' Well, that seems pretty reasonable.
Apart from his good looks and chiselled frame, it was Asim hair that became iconic. Asim was definitely the stylish one in the Bigg Boss 13 house. As soon as the season concluded, half of the nation's boys were sporting Asim's trademark look.
Asim was also known for his camaraderie with Sidharth Shukla. From being alongside him like a younger brother to turning into a bitter enemy, Asim and Sidharth stole the limelight, be it with their love for each other or the ugly fights they had inside the Bigg Boss 13 house.
For those not in the know, there were speculations that Asim Riaz had been offered a ridiculous Rs 50 crore for Bigg Boss 14 season. While he did not disclose the amount, he did confirm the offer. "Yes, I was offered. But the thing is that I have to spend 140 days in the house. It was a long time. For me, at that time I just recovered and it leaves an impact on your head that you just remember something and it’s like ‘I don’t want to go back’," Asim Riaz told Bollywood Bubble in an interview.
He further added, "This is not the right time for me to go. I thought I have just recovered and doing good in my life. If I get a chance I will go. But at that time when I was offered, I wasn’t ready to be very honest."
