An interesting fact about the show is that the contestants will have to earn every basic need by winning the tasks and assignments given. While the winner will get one step closer to their necessity and winning the show, the losing contestants will have to face punishments and other harsh treatments like any other normal jail. Kangana will be playing the role of a jailer every week throughout the show. Ekta Kapoor also revealed another twist of the game show that the host, Kangana will have the 50% power to save or eliminate any contestants.
According to the sources, the contestants who will be seen on the show are well-known television personalities. A few of them are Hina Khan, Shehnaaz Gill, Avneet Kaur, Anushka Sen, Chetan Bhagat, Divyanka Tripathi, Surbhi Jyoti, Shweta Tiwari Urfi Javed, Vir Das, Harsh Beniwal, and others. While Shehnaaz Gill has already agreed to be on the show when approached, Vir Das has clarified on Twitter, that he has neither been approached for the show nor he is interested in the concept. On the other hand, after gaining a massive appreciation for the tribute she gave to Sidharth, Shehnaaz will be coming on screen with a reality show after a long time.
Recently, Kangana Ranaut officially shared the first look of ‘Lock Upp’ with a hot and bold image of her in a golden suit.
