Bigg Boss OTT 2 is set to welcome Mohammed Hassan Hadid aka Jad Hadid as its first Arab contestant. Jad is excited to be a part of the show and expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome he received in India. Here’s everything you need to know about this charming Arab personality.
Jad’s journey began when he was just three years old. His parents, going through a divorce and overwhelmed with stress and anxiety, left him on a neighbor’s doorstep in Lebanon, hoping the neighbor would take care of him. However, the neighbor eventually had to take Jad to an orphanage due to financial constraints when he was seven years old.
At the age of 13, Jad was discovered by a fast food chain on the street, which led to him appearing in a TV commercial. Since then, he has been a familiar face on television, renowned as a model and actor in the Arab and European world. She has appeared in various soap operas, TV series and has graced the covers of magazines and represented airlines.
Jad has been married for five years and has a four-year-old daughter. Sharing his excitement to join the show, he said, “I decided to participate in this show as I visited India for the first time as an invited guest by my sponsor and management to attend AR Rahman’s daughter’s wedding in Chennai. I have witnessed the immense love and support that Abdu Rozik has received from India as a guest and I sincerely hope to receive even a percentage of that love.”
He continued: “Like Abdu, I did not have the opportunity to go to school. Instead, I went to the library every day, spending hours immersed in books and listening to people talk about what they were reading. I love meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, enjoying different cuisines and exploring new places. I am grateful for this opportunity to show my true self on such a big platform and thank my sponsor and Bigg Boss team for believing in me.”
Jad also said: “I really appreciated the warm welcome I received in India and felt a genuine sense of connection with the close-knit families and rich culture. It’s something I’ve never experienced in my life, so I make an effort to devote my time and love to my daughter. In the world of acting, modeling and social media, we are often judged for every move we make. Of course, I feel like this show will give me a chance to show people what’s really inside. I have faced numerous challenges, experienced pain, love, loss and success. Love or hate from people is what propels us forward in life. I hope to be a valuable addition to the show and who knows, maybe find my own Miss India love story as I find Indian women incredibly attractive!”
