If final_qu is already a tuple of strings, and what you need is one string
with each string in the tuple concatenated, then you can do this:

>>> final_qu = ('1','two','hello','2003-08-14','23:32:07')
>>> final_qu_str = ' '.join(final_qu)
>>> final_qu_str
'1 two hello 2003-08-14 23:32:07'
>>>

If you can't guarantee that each tuple element is a string, try this:
>>> final_qu_str = ' '.join([str(e) for e in final_qu])
>>> final_qu_str
'1 two hello 2003-08-14 23:32:07'
>>>

[str(e) for e in final_qu] creates a list of a strings from the elements in
final_qu.
