After KTR’s open invite, comedian Munawar Faruqui all set to perform

Hyderabad: Comedian Munawar Faruqui, who was last month stopped by Bengaluru police from performing in the city citing possible law and order problems amid protest by right-wing outfits, is all set to perform in Hyderabad.

Faruqui took to his Instagram to announce his show titled ‘Dhando’ which will be taking place on January 9. Sharing the post, he wrote, “Ticket link in BIO miyaaa.”

The venue is yet to be announced and the tickets are priced from Rs 799, according to the online ticket booking platform BookMyShow.

KTR to Comedian Munawar Faruqui

Earlier, Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao said that Hyderabad is “truly cosmopolitan” and offers stand-up comedians an “open invite”.

“We don’t cancel shows of Munawar Faruqui and Kunal Kamra just because we are not aligned with them politically,” he added.

Faruqui’s show in Bengaluru was cancelled in November after protests by Hindu right-wing groups, who alleged that he had hurt their religious sentiments in one of his shows. Besides Bengaluru, his shows in Gujarat, Gurgaon, Chhattisgarh, and Goa too were canceled following threats from various Hindutva groups.
