Munawar Faruqui won the 17th season of Bigg Boss earlier this year. After Bigg Boss 17, Munawar appeared in a music video called ‘Halki Halki Si’. It was a love song that also included Hina Khan.

Munawar Faruqui was seized along with 14 others in March of this year during a raid on a hookah parlour in Mumbai, India. The raid occurred in Mumbai’s Bora Bazar. “During the raid, the police found stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui and others smoking hookahs at the joint. We also have a video of their act. We detained Faruqui and others, but they were later allowed to go as the sections slapped against them were bailable,” a senior police officer told news agency PTI.

All people held, including Munawar, were reportedly charged with violating the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act and IPC sections 283 (risk or obstruction in a public way or line of navigation) and 336 (act endangering the life or personal safety of others). However, they were released in just a few hours.
