New Delhi: Munawar Faruqui has won the reality show ‘Lock Upp’ and considering the fact that the comedian was arrested and spent time in a real lock-up, he says it was comparatively easier for him.
Munawar, started his career as a stand-up comedian and YouTuber, and he became national news when he was arrested in Bhopal on January 2, 2021 for a comedy show that he didn’t even perform. Later on February 6, he was granted bail.
Just after winning the show, and holding the trophy, Munawar had a quick chat with IANS.
When asked which lock-up was tougher to deal with, the comedian told IANS: ” Well compared to the real lock-up, this was not even half per cent…no one knows the humiliation there. This was a game!”
Fans got to know several insights about Munawar and some of the incidents also made everyone emotional. Recalling his childhood trauma and his mother’s suicide was one such memory.
