Over the last few years, Munawar Faruqui managed to cement his place as a household name following his win in Lockupp season 1. The popular comedian and rapper had been rumoured to be part of many more reality shows since then, but things never materialised. Now as we gear up for the 17th season of Bigg Boss, we have the news that Munawar Faruqui is all set to participate in the Salman Khan-hosted show!
For the unversed, Lockupp’s debut season (and only season so far) streamed on an OTT platform two years ago. Despite it being a new show, there was immense fanfare and craze, and a major contributor of this was Munawar Faruqui himself! Viewers of the show could not help but express their love and admiration for the humble and charismatic Munawar.
Since then, fans are in constant praise of him, due to his relatable, and open and honest personality. Hailing from Dongri, Munawar has served as an inspiration to so many viewers after his participation on Lockupp. It was therefore no surprise that he walked away as the winner of the show.
As Munawar Faruqui gears up for Bigg Boss, fans and viewers are hopeful that he will continue to shine on the ever popular show. Entering with the experience of a captive reality show, and with a massive fan following from Lockupp, immediately makes him a tough competitor to fellow big name contestants like Ankita Lokhande, Aishwarya Sharma, among others.
We are sure that he is going to rock the Bigg Boss 17 house, and keep households worldwide entertained and inspired on a daily basis during the season!
