The finale was extra special for Munawar as it was also his birthday. Talking to Times Now, he said in an interview, “Isse badiya birthday nahi ho sakta (it couldn't have been better).”

Bigg Boss 17

Munawar was one of the strongest contestants in the Bigg Boss 17 house. He grabbed the attention of viewers ever since he participated in the show, a lot because of his shayaris. However, later on, his popularity fell a little after his game backfired on him following his ex Ayesha Khan's entry into the house.

Ayesha made several allegations against him in the show. From blaming him for cheating on her to making alleged false promises, she even claimed that he proposed to another girl for marriage. She also mentioned Munawar's ex-girlfriend Nazila on the show. Despite these, Munawar stood strong and won the show with heavy votes in his favour.

Before Bigg Boss 17, Munawar rose to fame after winning Lock Upp. It was hosted by Kangana Ranaut.
