Lock Upp is set to conclude on May 7, 2022, with the announcement of its winner.

The show has become one of the most-watched reality shows on the OTT platform ALTBalaji.

After watching the first episode, many social media users took to Twitter and called out the reality show for being similar to Bigg Boss in more ways than one.

Others went to the extent of terming Lock Upp as a ‘sasti copy’ of the Salman Khan-hosted show.

Hosted by Kangana Ranaut, the show began with 16 contestants and now there are only seven contestants on the show.

Several controversial celebrities are a part of the show and dealing with them as a host can be tricky sometimes.

Kangana has been dealing with them if they show any kind of disrespect towards her or create drama.

After entertaining its viewers for weeks, the show is heading towards its finals and the contestants are leaving no stones unturned to prove themselves.

How can I watch the Lock Upp Finale?

The Lock Upp grand finale will be telecast on MXPlayer and ALTBalaji on Saturday, May 7 at 10.30 pm.

Host Kangana Ranaut will announce the winner of the show. Ahead of the finale, there will be a special episode airing on Thursday, May 5.

The episode will reportedly feature Tejasswi Prakash as the warden of the jail along with jailer Karan Kundrra.

The episode will also include special performances from the finalists and the ex-contestants of Lock Upp.

Munawar has seen several ups and downs during his journey on the show. He also made many shocking revelations that took the internet by storm.

He confessed that he was married and that he also had a child from the marriage. He added that he got married at a young age and that they haven’t been living together for the past 1.5 years.

Munawar also had a breakdown when he opened up about the sexual abuse he faced as a child.

He revealed: “They were my relatives, two of them and it continued for 4-5 years. I would not understand at the time. It was a close family.

“It went on 4-5 years and got extreme in the fourth year. Then they realised they should stop it.”

Munawar’s chemistry with Anjali Arora also created a lot of buzz online.

While Munawar has maintained that he considers Anjali his friend, the latter has admitted to feeling “romantically” for him.
