Who is Farmani Naaz?

Farmani Naaz has been a YouTuber for a very long time, however, she gained fame from the singing reality show Indian Idol 12 where she had revealed that her husband left her after their son was born with a throat problem in 2019. Since then she has been singing, and her brother Farman works as a laborer to earn a livelihood.

Recently, Farmani Naaz came under fire by Muslim clerics for singing ‘Har Har Shambhu’, a bhajan dedicated to Lord Shiva and sharing it on YouTube. The cleric from Deoband had said that singing and dancing are not allowed under Islam. Farmani had hit back that she doesn’t associate with faith when it comes to singing as it is a source of income for her.

Bigg Boss makers are famous for choosing controversial contestants and Farmani Naaz’s latest controversy might have made her a smart choice for the reality show.
