Lock Upp: Jailor Karan Kundrra consoles crying Munawar Faruqui, wins netizen’s heart

Since the launch of Kangana Ranaut’s debut reality show Lock Upp, comedian and one of the show’s contestants Munawar Faruqui has garnered immense love from the audiences. He has become people’s favourite at such a great speed that he may also end up winning the show. In a recent episode of Lock Upp, Munawar broke down in tears and was seen being consoled by Jailor actor Karan Kundrra.

For the facts, the comedian, who had spent a month in an Indore jail last year after he was accused of hurting religious sentiments in one of his stand-up shows, had entered the captivity-based reality show on the charges of a “joke gone wrong.” Munawar in the episode, became emotional as he wanted to talk to his parents.

The latest promo shared by the makers showed jailor Karan Kundrra entering the jail after seeing Munawar break down. Karan hugged Munawar and told the comedian, “Jab tu hasta hai na, to puri country hasti hai. Aaj tu ro raha hai na, puri country aur mai bhi ro raha hu (When you laugh, the entire country laughs with you. Today you are crying, I and the entire country is crying with you). You are a sweetheart.”

Karan added, “Jinke call ke liye tu wait kar raha hai na (the people whose calls you are waiting for), they are looking at you, they are with you, 24 hours all the time. Unki duaein tere saath hain, pure Hindustan ki duaien tere saath hain (Their prayers are with you, prayers of the entire country are with you).” See the video here:

Karan received a lot of praises from his fans for his gesture, many of whom dropped red heart emoji in the comment section on the post. One wrote about Karan, “Loved your pep talk with Payal and this. You are all heart.” Another wrote, “He is great soul.” Social media users also said they wished Karan had someone to console him when he was going through a tough phase in the Bigg Boss house. One wrote, “I sooooooo wish there were someone with him that day.” Another commented, “Why didn’t Karan get all this. He also deserved this comfort, this motivation too. We love you so much Karan.”
