‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’: Munawar Faruqui bows out of the show; here’s why


Munawar Faruqui made a name for himself by winning the controversial reality show, ‘Lock Upp’ and fans of the reality star were looking forward to seeing him take on daredevil stunts in the forthcoming twelfth edition of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ TV show.

He was said to be a part of the adventure reality series which is currently being shot in Cape Town, South Africa with director Rohit Shetty, mentoring and hosting the show.

Much to everyone’s surprise though, when the final contestant list was announced, Munawar’s name was not a part of it. Even so, many fans simply assumed that he could be entering the show a few weeks later as a wild card entry. This has happened in the past editions of the show, where a new celebrity becomes a part of the show as a wild card entry.

However, Munawar put to rest all rumours and speculations by taking to his social media and announcing that he will not be a part of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’ and he also stated in the post that he is taking a break as he wants some time alone.

Munawar Faruqui impressed one and all in the Kangana Ranaut hosted show, ‘Lock Upp’. But despite emerging the winner and getting a massive fan following and rise in popularity from the show, Munawar took to his Twitter to announce that he will not be a part of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’.

To his fans he penned a heartfelt note and apologised to them that he was not going to be a part of the adventure reality TV show.

He stated that he was looking for some alone time, far away from the spotlight. His tweet read, “Doston, kuch reasons ki wajah se mai nahi hissa ban paunga KKK ka Im really sorry, yakeen mano mera bahot mann tha ???? lekin kismat ko kuch manzur hai, aap sab disappoint ho, lekin nahi ja pane ka muje bhi bura lag raha hai… Entertainment aata rahega. Need some time alone. ????????”

(Friends, due to some reasons I will not be able to participate in KKK, I am really sorry, please believe me, I really wanted to, but fate had other plans. I know you all must be disappointed but even I am feeling bad that I can’t go for the show… Entertainment will always keep coming… Need some alone time)

Here is the tweet:

On the work front, Munawar was recently seen in the music video ‘Halki Si Barsaat’ which also featured his girlfriend Nazila. Besides this, it remains to be seen, which other projects Munawar will be a part of in the near future.
