Ever since the probable contestant list of Bigg Boss Tamil Season 5 leaked, everyone was wondering who Niroop was. Soon, reports were doing the rounds that Niroop is former Bigg Boss contestant Yashika Aannand's ex-boyfriend. He has been doing well at the tasks inside the house. Last week, Bigg Boss announced the task Oru Kadha Sollatuma which requires contestants to come up with their life story and present it interestingly. This week he spoke about his life. Stating that he was a quiet kid, he opened up about how his mom was diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was in the ninth grade. He said," It was the first disappointment in my life."
He then opened up about studying at a polytechnic college. "Since everyone was older than me, I got intimidated and didn't reveal that I knew Tamil. They would talk badly in front of me. It would hurt me so bad. But, I understood many things about humans." It was then Niroop wanted to pursue modeling. "I met my girlfriend Yashika. If I got the Bigg Boss chance, it is because of her. There is no insult or embarrassment in saying that she guided me. Many people would ask me if I am being called Yashika's ex-boyfriend. It was Yashika who showed me away in my life. Why can't gry grow in life because of a girl?"
