"Get married soon."
Munawar Faruqui, who was declared the winner of Lock Upp, on May 21, 2022, posted a series of photos with his girlfriend and social media personality Nazila.
The stand-up comedian is seen posing with Nazila in the new photos he shared on Instagram, which he captioned with self-written poetry.
“Ab nahi hai hum charago ke mohtaj, uski ankhein mehfile roshan karti hai. Mai kitaaben fir se almari me rakh aaya hun, Suna hai woh ba-kamaal insaan padti hai,” Munawar captioned his post.
It loosely translates to, “I don’t need lamps anymore, her eyes can light any occasion. I have packed away my books, I have heard she reads people well.”
Munawar’s latest post featuring Nazila, whom he fondly referred to as ‘Naz,’ during his Lock Upp stint, without ever confirming their relationship, garnered the attention of fans.
While some appreciated their chemistry, others wanted to see them married soon.
One Instagram user commented on Munawar’s photos, “Made for each other.”
A fan called them, “Bhaiya Bhabhi (brother and sister-in-law).”
A person also wrote, “Beautiful couple.” Another Instagram user also commented, “Nazar na lage (ward off the evil eye).”
One fan also appreciated the comedian’s poetry, writing, “Kya baat hai bhai and bhabi (Wow, brother and sister-in-law), awesome pose and shayari (poetry).”
One user wrote, “Bhai jaldi nikah karlo (Get married soon).”
Munawar Faruqui recently celebrated his Lock Upp win by throwing a party in Mumbai, where he entered the venue holding Nazila’s hand.
Earlier, the two, as well as fellow Lock Upp contestant, Anjali Arora, were spotted at the screening of Kangana Ranaut-starrer Dhaakad, where they also posed for photographers.
Payal Rohatgi was also spotted attending the film screening.
Before his appearance on the reality show Lock Upp, which was produced by Ekta Kapoor, Munawar Faruqui had been facing a tough time.
Along with the Lock Upp trophy, Munawar also took home £20,000, a trip to Italy and a brand new car.
Unlike most reality shows, this one zeroed on its winner not only based on votes.
The host was allowed to have the last word. Munawar received the highest votes, but Kangana Ranaut also picked him as the ultimate winner.
Munawar entered the show on the heels of his controversy.
He had spent a month in jail in 2021 for allegedly “insulting Hindu gods and goddesses” during one of his shows.
After he was released on bail, many of his shows were cancelled.
In a statement, the comedian had later said, that he was put in jail for a joke he had never made. He also hinted that he was done with comedy.
He had written: “Hate has won, the artist has lost. I’m done, goodbye. Injustice.”
