So I am very happy and excited to be a part of this show. This show will let people know who I am. Earlier audiences knew me from the movie Dangal. The Lock Upp will see 16 celebrities jailed for 72 days, denied access to basic facilities. “You (contestants) have to face your temptations, your demons, your insecurities and uncover your deepest truth,” Kangana said at the launch event of the show.
