Munawar Faruqui is currently conquering the hearts of millions of people. His appearance on the reality show Lock Upp made him a household celebrity, and he won the first season. The standup comedian did everything he could to win Lock Upp, from divulging his dark secrets to staging a phoney romance with participant Anjali Arora. Fans started nicknamed them Munjali Munawar + Anjali and established a hashtag for them. However, once Munawar Faruqui left the show, he revealed his true love Nazila Sitashi to the world, breaking the hearts of Munjali followers.
“I know it must have not been easy for her to witness all that happened as I and Anjali were extremely close and she went through a lot of emotions, but in the end, she understood the game and backed me,” Munawar Faruqui said when asked about his girlfriend Nazila’s reaction to his and Anjali’s phoney love tale. Above all, she had entire faith in me.
“My love life was always private, and since I was on the show and she was outside of it, it wasn’t right for me to talk about it,” he responded when asked if he purposefully kept his relationship with Nazila hidden on the show. I had to talk to her about it and then make a decision. I spoke to her after I came out and told her I was in a relationship. It was never my desire to keep it hidden.
