The name of another contestant on the reality show Lock Upp was revealed today. Hosted by actor Kangana Ranaut, the show will see a bunch of controversial celebrities locked up in a pretend jail, with the host having the power to make their stay miserable or eliminate them altogether.

Lock Upp will start airing online from February 27 on MX Player. Calling it the baap of the reality show, the makers dropped the teaser of it recently, which sees Ranaut setting her own set of rules for the controversial contestants.

In the poster shared by the actor, she is seen wearing a shimmery gold suit and is sporting a sleek ponytail, with her metallic boots resting on the shoulder of a person in orange coloured clothes, supposed to be a prisoner. “Mere samne ab sabko karna padega kneel! Iss badass jail mein hoga atyaachaari khel!” read the caption of Ranaut’s post.

In the teaser, Ranaut says, “My Jail, my rules! and in my prison, there will be 16 controversial celebrities.” The reality television show will run for 72 days. Talking about it the show’s producer Ekta Kapoor said that Lock Upp isn’t inspired by any international show and Ranaut is going to have 50 percent rights to eliminate contestants from the show.

Over the past few days, two contestants’ names have been announced. The first one was television actor Nisha Rawal and the second one is that of stand up comedian Munawar Faruqui. On Wednesday, Poonam Pandey revealed that she is the third contestant on the show.

She shared her promo video on her Instagram feed and wrote, “Hot ke chakkar mein ho gayi main locked up (I got locked up because I am hot)! #LockUpp streaming from 27th Feb, LIVE free on @altbalaji and @mxplayer.”

Pandey told India Today that she is excited to be part of the “biggest controversial show” in India. “I don’t know what will happen in there because whatever I have read and have seen about the show, I have understood that I have to perform a task even for my basic necessities and there is no luxury in this Lock Upp. So I don’t know how am I going to pull this off, but I am nervous and excited at the same time.”
