Kangana Ranaut, an actor, director, and producer, is going to add another feather to her cap as the host of a reality programme. With ALT Balaji and MX Player’s brave reality show Lock Upp- Badass Jail, Atyaachari Khel, the actor will make her web debut. In a never-before-seen reality show, 16 controversial celebrities will be locked up for months and deprived of their possessions.
Lock Upp will also have a celebrity jailer whose identity has yet not been unveiled. Speaking at the event, Kangana took a dig at Salman Khan hosted reality show Bigg Boss. “Ye koi aapke bade bhai ka ghar nahi hai, yeh mera jail hai (This is not your big brother’s house, this is my jail). I will have files of every contestant and their truth,” she said. As soon as her indirect jibe at Salman Khan’s show went viral netizens started calling Kangana a ‘Queen’.
Further talking about the show marking her OTT debut, Kangana said, “For a long time, I wanted to do something on OTT but I didn’t have any clarity to what I wanted to do. When Ekta called and narrated the idea I really liked it.”
“In most of my films, I play larger-than-life characters. I never got a chance to interact with the audience at my level. I had Twitter but I have been banned from there (laughs). So I thought this show would allow me to interact with the people,” she added.
