Umar was quoted saying, “Tejasswi has gone wrong in the show so many times. She is so camera conscious that she will never accept her fault and will argue over it. She will try to prove she’s always right. I never appreciated this attitude and I always exposed it. I think the makers did not like that I was exposing her because they wanted to promote her. I don’t know why and what are their reasons. But they did not like it that I was revealing her real side.”  

“When I came out I learnt even she would say many things about me, and recently she even abused me. None of her comments was highlighted ever because they wanted her to be seen in a good light”, Umar added.

Umar also stated that ‘Tejasswi joh hai Woh Rishtey banati hai, Woh Kabhi jhooth nahi bolti.’ “It looks very clear that they are trying to highlight a made-up image of Tejasswi Prakash which she is not in real life,” he added.
