Lock Upp Grand Finale Live News Updates: Kangana Ranaut’s hosted show Lock Upp has concluded its debut season. The show witnessed its grand finale on Saturday during which Munawar Faruqui emerged as the winner, while Payal Rohatgi was the first runner-up. Anjali Arora was the second runner-up. Kangana expressed how Anjali’s journey was not really impressive in comparison to Munawar and Payal.
The show, produced by Ekta Kapoor, pitted 20 contestants against each other in a jail-like setting. It was conceived as a streaming alternative to the popular Bigg Boss, although Ekta had immediately offered differentiating factors between the two shows. In an interview with The Quint, she’d said that she wanted to de-clutter the reality show space, and who better to host than Kangana, a person who has de-cluttered Bollywood.
