After his Lock Upp win, Munawar shared a romantic picture with a mystery girl on his Instagram handle, leaving his fans in shock, as he had never mentioned his girlfriend on the show.
Later, in an interview with ETimes and revealed why he never mentioned her on the show. He said, “I’ve known Nazila for a year now and we have been dating for a few months. The situation inside the house was not right to talk about Nazila. As I was inside the show and she was outside and I was not there with her at that moment in the outside world so I refrained from revealing her identity. In our life there are different aspects of us about which we are protective. I don’t think it is wrong to be protective about our loved ones and the moment I came out I posted her picture.”
Last weekend, Munawar lifted the winner’s trophy beating co-contestant Payal Rohatgi in the finale of the first season of Lock Upp. He received more than 18 lakh votes and won ₹20 lakh, a car, and an all-expense-paid trip to Italy.
