Munawar Faruqui revealed his mother died of suicide after consuming acid

Earlier on April 17 this year, Munawar Faruqui revealed on the show that his mother died of suicide. He was given a chance to reveal a secret and save himself from elimination. Though initially, he hesitated to talk about the matter, he later requested the host of the show Kangana Ranaut to let him reveal the secret irrespective of whether he got saved or not.

Munawar said it was his mother who ran the household. She would make papad and other snacks to sell so that she could earn enough money to manage the expenses. His father and grandparents did not support them financially. He said, “I saw my mother getting abused day and night for 22 years. If that day I had slept next to her, she might not have taken the extreme step.”
