With the most awaited Bigg Boss 17 being premiered today, all the eyes are trained on the show’s host Salman Khan and his inimitable hosting skills. Besides that, all the eyes are eagerly awaiting the names of the contestants of this season of Bigg Boss, which, apparently, is in its seventeenth season!
Starting today, let us have an insight of the contestants who will be forming this season’s contestants. The first contestant is none other than stand-up comedian cum rapper Munawar Faruqui.

Who is Munawar Faruqui:
Munawar Faruqui is a stand-up comedian and also a rapper. Known for his relatable content during his stand ups, there have been times when his shows have been cancelled. Not the one to allow anything to act as a roadblock, this man is unstoppable to say the least. Armed with an endearing smile, he is seemingly all set to unleash the side of his that makes him so famous!

Any previous reality show that he has been a part of?
Yes! He was one of the contestants in the Kangana Ranaut hosted ‘Lock Upp’. Not just he was a part of the show, he also went ahead and won the first ever season of the show. In that sense, he knows the Ps and Qs of participating in a reality show and even the route to win the show. Will he adopt the same strategy during his stint with the Salman Khan hosted Bigg Boss 17 is what remains to be seen.

Is he controversial?
Well… he cannot be termed as someone who is controversial in that sense. At the same time, one cannot deny the fact that, he had been arrested on January 1 a couple of years back, just before he was about to kickstart his performance at a popular cafe joint in the popular 56 Dukan locality of Indore. The said case had got filed based on a complaint by Eklavya Gaur, who happens to be the son of Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Malini Gaur and also the convenor of ‘Hind Rakshak Sangathan’. 

The introductory video of Munawar Faruqui
The channel’s social media handle introduced him as ‘Bigg Boss ke ghar mein jaa rahe hai ek standup comedian. Chaliye dekhte hai Bigg Boss ke ghar mein kya hoti hai inki journey laajawaab?’. On the other hand, Salman Khan said, “Ab tak karte aaye hue ho stand-up, weekened pe jab main aaun, tab karna shut up! Kisi ki na karna pant down, aur dua karna main karoon as a winner aapka hands up!

What can one expect from Munawar Faruqui in the Salman Khan hosted Bigg Boss 17?
With his ability to come up with impromptu stand ups, he could just be the entertainer inside the Bigg Boss house. At the same time, he is also someone who tends to call a spade a spade. It is this quality of his that could help him make more enemies in the Bigg Boss house than friends. At the same time, Munawar Faruqui seems to be someone who will not think twice before taking a bullet for his friend! Besides this, his ability to rap will also attract lots of attention from the audiences as well as his fellow contestants.
