Dhamkiyan mat dijiye: Munawar Faruqui tells Kangana Ranaut at ‘Lock Upp’ premiere


MUMBAI: Comedian Munawwar Farooqui on Sunday clashed with actor and show host Kangana Ranaut at the premiere of reality show “Lock Up” to be aired on Alt Balaji and MX Player. While Kangana is the host and jailer of the show, Munavvar is one of the contestants. In one of the promos of the show, Kangana can be seen telling Munavwar that she deserves ‘saja-e-maut’ (death sentence) for one of his comments, to which the comedian replied, ‘Don’t give threats. ‘ (Don’t threaten me).

In the promo, host Kangana Ranaut was shown asking him, “Munawwar, why are you here? I hope you’re not here to mess with me. It was a joke, man. Hum bhi toh joke maar sakte hai (Just kidding. We can tell jokes too)”

Responding to his comment, Munawwar laughs and says, “Bas little funny nahi tha (only thing, it wasn’t funny).”

In his introduction the comedian can be seen saying, “I don’t want to change anything with comedy. Artist Kranti Nahi Laya Paaya Aaj Tak (I don’t need to change anything from comedy. An artist can’t bring any revolution till date).

Kangana vehemently disagreed with his statement and replied, “Agar wahaar sazza-e-maut hutta to inko di jaat (What did you say? An artist cannot bring a revolution… If there is a death sentence, then That would have been given.”

Munawwar hit back at Kangana saying, “Mere ko dhamakiyaan mat diye (Don’t threaten me).”

Both Munawwar Farooqui and Kangana Ranaut are known to have opposing views on politics and social issues. Earlier, in 2020 and 2021, Munavvar had posted tweets, taking a dig at Kangana’s comments on nepotism and other issues.

The comedian started his journey in 2017 by doing stand-up. In 2018, Munawar became the winner of Comic Who 4.0 and Open Mic at the Synergy Fest.

He rose to national fame in 2021, following his controversial arrest by Madhya Pradesh’s Indore Police in a case of allegedly hurting religious sentiments. Munawwar spent almost a month behind bars.

‘Lock Up’ streams on Alt Balaji and MX Player. Some of the other contestants of the reality show hosted by Kangana Ranaut are Nisha Rawal, Karanvir Bohra, Poonam Pandey and Babita Phogat.
