Bigg Boss 16's confirmed contestant Abdu Rozik

Bigg Boss 16 confirmed contestant Abdu Rozik is currently trending highly on Google as viewers eagerly await the announcement of the remaining contestants. At the press conference on Tuesday, Salman Khan revealed Abdu Rozik as one of the confirmed Bigg Boss 16 competitors. Abdu is an adult, despite his baby-faced appearance.

Following the uploading of the videos showing Abdu and Hasbulla yelling and fighting, the latter became an instant internet sensation in 2021. After several press conferences and in-person confrontations, the two were meant to fight, but nothing ever happened. Similar to Hasbulla, many people have assumed Abdu is older than he is due to his baby-faced appearance. However, he is only 19 years old.

Abdu, a well-known internet personality from Tajikistan, which borders Afghanistan, first became well-known for singing rap songs in his native tongue.
