He is one of the 16 contestants of the reality show, titled ‘Lock Upp’. The show will be hosted by the Manikarnika actress- Kangana Ranaut. Lock Upp is being produced by Ekta Kapoor and the promo of the show disclosed that Munawar is going to be one of the contestants.

Talking to the media, Munawar said, “I thought it’s going to be a tough and challenging journey for me, I am glad that this show also gives me an opportunity to be myself in a real setup. I am glad to be associated with ALTBalaji, MX Player for offering me such a unique reality show.”

Munawar’s revelation came after actress Nisha Rawal was announced as the first contestant. 


Talking about the show, Stand up Comedian added that “This show has been in the center of controversies surrounding his jokes on Hindu worship idols. This show has come up with a very different concept and it’s one of a kind. I believe it has the potential to change the dynamics of the content-viewing experience in the Indian OTT industry.”

Talking to the media Kangana Ranaut said, “I am thrilled and excited for foraying into OTT with such a unique and brilliant concept. I am sure this show will give me a great opportunity to get in touch with my fans and entertain them as the host of the Lock Upp. The show will stream on MX Player and  ALT Balaji from the 27th of February.
