Kangana Ranaut was recently in Delhi to unveil the trailer of her upcoming reality show ‘Lock Uup’. While interacting with journalists, she expressed her desire to see Karan Johar, among other celebrities, locked up in her jail.

She said, “In my lock up, I would love to put my best friend, Karan Johar. Besides him, I would like to put Ekta (Kapoor). I am also a great admirer of Aamir Khan and Mr Bachchan and it will be fun to have them too in the lock up. Apart from them, I would also like to have some politicians.”

Lock Uup also marks Kangana’s debut as a host. “My role will be to engage and interact with contestants and mentor them,” she said.

The show will feature 16 contestants who would be challenged with compelling tasks and complex situations to fight to survive in the jail.

This is the first time that Kangana has tried her hand with this format.

Calling it a ‘different’ role, she said, “I am excited as I have never done this before. I took this opportunity because I liked the concept and realised that Ekta is behind it.”

Ekta Kapoor defines the idea of the show as one-of-a-kind experience for contestants. She said that tasks and situations would bring out true personality of the contestants.

She said, “The unique thing about this show is that contestants will not be able to prepare anything because it is not based on any tried and tested format. I feel the society compels people to be fake. So, I wanted to make a show where we could bring human psychology to the forefront and compel people to show their true identity. I believe that this show will capture all shades of their personality with audiences.”

To make the show interactive, the makers have developed a fantasy game for viewers to play along while the show is being telecasted.

Lock Uup will start on February 27. It will stream 24X7 on ALTBalaji and MX Player. Endemol Shine India has produced the show.
