Ekta Kapoor’s Lock Upp Season 1 was a huge success and Munawar Faruqui was declared the winner of the show.
Lock Upp is a reality show where 17 contestants will be locked in jail, play the game, and fight for getting bail to survive. It was launched on MX Player and ALT Balaji.

Well, the fans were excited when the two names were out, but seems like the two have declined the show for their prior commitments.
