Produced by Ekta Kapoor, the reality show Lock up featured several controversial personalities such as Munawar Faruqui, Payal Rohatgi, Sara Khan, Poonam Pandey, and more.

In fact, this was Kangana’s first digital debut and she proved that she’s the real queen when it comes to entertainment.

Every day, these inmates had to face new challenges, and at the end of the week, one participant was eliminated. However, the ones who constantly were under the spotlight were the top 3 finalists of the show – Munawar, Payal, and Anjali.

And the winner is…

On Saturday, Munawar Faruqui became the winner of Lock Upp Season 1. He received over 18 lakh votes from his fans. That’s huge, isn’t it? Well, the fans love him so much that he was trending on Twitter, every single day, during his stay in the jail.

During the show, he opened up and spilled a lot of secrets about his family, got emotional about the financial crisis, and even fought to win the tasks. His authenticity and witty behavior won the audience’s heart.

Munawar walks away with…

Munawar’s hard work and sincerity have finally paid off. Winning the show has changed Munawar’s life completely. He not only bagged the glorious Lock Upp winner trophy but has also won Rs. 20 lakhs cash prize. That’s not all, he also got a Maruti Ertiga car and a trip to Italy.

During the finale, all the ex-contestants were also present. Sara Khan and others danced to several songs to entertain the audience. And Munawar did what he does the best – comedy. He roasted a few of the contestants, leaving everyone laughing.

Karan Kundrra was the jailor and Tejasswi Prakash was the warden on the show, the audience loved their chemistry. The couple also danced together in the finale.

Even the glamorous diva, Kangana, shook a leg on one of her songs. So, it won’t be wrong to say that the Lock Upp show finale was equally entertaining and gave it a deserving closure.

This story of love, betrayal, romance, and companionship will keep you hooked until the very end. 

Talking about the heartwarming plot of the web series, the lead actor who plays Manav told Bollywood Life, “This is something fresh and something new and something that we have done with an honest approach. We have given it our all. It was an honest effort from my side. When I see that onscreen I can feel that a little. I don’t know what people think of it. From my end, it was an honest approach. It was ‘work’ for me, and I would never say no to work. I am an actor at the end of the day. If I had not done it somebody else would have picked it up. I felt it was a good character and I wanted to do justice to it, and so, I gave it my all.”

Talking about Pavitra Rishta’s storyline, Ankita Lokhande who plays Archana told First Post, “Pavitra Rishta is all about romance. The lead characters Archana and Manav are in love but they don’t say it because of the family situation. It’s about two people who may not be perfect as individuals but they are perfect for each other and that is what connected with the audience. It is an unsaid, unexpressed romance and feelings where your eyes and body language speaks a lot instead of words.”
