Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is all set to host Ekta Kapoor’s fearless reality show ‘Lock Upp’. And ever since the show has been announced, names of potential contestants have been doing the rounds.
As per reports, well-known personalities of entertainment industry and other fields will be seen on the show. Few names includes Divyanka Tripathi, Manav Gohil, Hina Khan, Shweta Tiwari, Surbhi Jyoti, Urfi Javed, Aditya Singh Rajput, Mallika Sherawat, Anushka Sen, Avneet Kaur, Chetan Bhagat, Harsh Beniwal, Shehnaaz Gill, Vir Das and others.
Kangana says in the trailer of ‘Lock Upp’ that she will put together 16 controversial celebrities in a lock up for months. Going by the latest reports on Bollywood Life, to make the show spicier and controversial, the makers are planning to add a few politicians in the show. Among them could be Shehnaaz Gill and her Bigg Boss 13 co-contestant Tehseen Poonawalla.
Being considered for ‘Lock Upp’, Poonawalla is a political and election analyst who never minces his words and he’s quite active on social media too.
A source close to the development told the portal, “They want political analysts as we know that such personalities have the gift of the gab and can be fiery too. We can trust Ekta Kapoor to think out of the box.”
Earlier, a source told Bollywood Life that Shehnaaz was approached for a spot in the show and she had signed the dotted lines. “Shehnaaz Gill has been approached to be part of Kangana Ranaut’s Lock Upp and she even agreed to do it, Shehnaaz is right now going through the rough phase in life and he wants to stay away from the media glare and the world for a while and this is the best opportunity for her. Also, Shehnaaz has won millions of hearts and she will be one of the strongest contestants in the house and will definitely get some special power to be in the Lock Upp,” the source claimed.
‘Lock Upp’ will be streaming from February 27 on ALTBalaji and MX Player.
