He further told the portal that his journey, all the time that he spent and the moments he lived inside the jail along with other contestants is special to him. He added, "We laughed, cried, danced, eat and sang together, we did everything and the entire journey is very special to me. I am feeling sad that the journey has come to an end."

Talking about his competition he added that he surely thinks that Payal was a strong competitor however he had a feeling that winner should not be her. He also clarified that though he is not the one to judge, the 36 China Town actress is good at handling responsibilities, however, she is not very good at entertaining people like him. "I was very nervous and scared that I hope I don’t lose the trophy to Payal Rohatgi who I don’t see as a winner,” he said mentioning his feelings during the final moments.

During the fifth week of the show, Munawar decided to buy a car after winning the prize money but fortunately, he bagged a classy set of wheels from the makers of Lock Upp. Now, speaking about using the prize money the rapper-comedian said, "I’ll use it for a good cause and for myself."
