Some Lesser Known Facts About Amrin Shaikh

  • Amrin Shaikh grew up in a humble family. Her father used to run a restaurant, but it didn’t go well, and he lost all his money, getting into a lot of debt. Due to money problems, her mother and grandmother used to make samosas at home and Munawar would sell them at a stall. In an interview, Munawar talked about the same and said,

    My mother and grandmother would make samosas at home, and I started a stall outside our house where I’d fry them up and sell them. It was a struggle. I burned my fingers, had hot oil splutter on me. But I became a pro with time, and this business worked.”

    Additionally, Munawar would pursue various odd jobs to support his family. In an interview, he talked about the same and said,

    We had a restaurant, but it didn’t work out. Dad lost all his money, was under massive debt, so I had to work. I worked for two months at a gift shop from 9 in the morning to 8 in the night. I made ₹850 per month for working 11 hours a day. I had to walk 3.5km to the shop. I didn’t like it, which is when we decided to do something else.”
