Where can you watch this show?
The controversial show with ‘Many Rules, One Queen’ as the tagline had various promos released right before the show was aired. Stated from February 27, Lock Upp is currently being streamed on ALT Balaji
Initial Controversy around the show
A court in Hyderabad has recently vacated the stay order and allowed the people of the reality show Lock Upp to host their show with actress Kangana Ranaut as it has been planned. This amazing reality show hosted by Kangana Ranaut is currently making headlines because of its amazing and unique concept. Although receiving the stay order was quite a task, it is now a relief to say that the court has allowed the show to easily stream online.
This began when Sanober Baig – a businessman from Hyderabad, saw the show’s promo and found a strong resemblance with his personal life and a popular show called the Jail. Sanober also filed a complaint saying the show has been plagiarized. While this caused a lot of trouble, it did eventually get resolved and now the show is being aired.
How is the show in comparison to Bigg Boss?
The Hindi Reality show is no way in comparison with Bigg Boss, except for the fact that the contestants would be locked up in jail just the way they were in the Bigg Boss house. The biggest deciding factor of contestant’s fate in this show is the games’ host Kangana Ranaut, in addition to Kangana’s decision the audience’s votes will also have a significant impact. In the show, the contestants will be kept captive in prison cells with basic cots, cooking utensils and desi-style washrooms.
