MUMBAI – In a recent video shared online, Bigg Boss sensation Khanzadi opened up about her difficulties in securing housing in Mumbai due to her Muslim identity, shedding light on the pervasive issue of religious discrimination in the city’s real estate sector.

During a media interaction, Khanzadi expressed her frustration. “I want to purchase a home in a neighbourhood where I feel secure. Despite the popularity of Salman Khan’s film 13 years ago, which is still beloved by many, I encounter obstacles when attempting to buy property in reputable areas. As soon as they discover my surname is Khan, they refuse to rent to Muslims. Throughout my life, I have only resided in homes owned by Muslims, which facilitated my accommodation. However, I now seek a suitable residence. Although rental rates are steep here, why am I being denied housing solely because of my surname?”

Khanzadi’s video swiftly went viral, sparking widespread debate on social media. Born Firoza Khan in Assam to a middle-class family of mixed Indian and Afghan heritage, Khanzadi has cultivated a career as a singer, rapper, and songwriter since childhood. Her participation in MTV Hustle Season 2, India’s inaugural rap competition reality show, bolstered her fame before her appearance on Bigg Boss 17.
