Lock Upp Winner: Comedian Munawar Faruqui lifts the trophy; beats Prince Narula, Payal Rohatgi & Shivam Sharma

Reality show Lock Upp hosted by none other than Kangana Ranaut finally came to an end on Saturday. Munwar Faruqui. was in jail not long ago for “insulting Hindu gods and goddesses”, a charge he denies, but well past Saturday/Sunday midnight, the controversial comedian was released from Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Lock Upp’ with a Rs 20 lakh cheque and brand new car. He was declared the winner of the show, whose finale also featured popular reality show regulars Payal Rohatgi, Anjali Arora, Azma Fallah and Shivam Sharma.

Unlike most reality shows, the Lock Upp winner was decided not only on the basis of popular votes, which was topped by Faruqui, but the host, Kangana, had the last word on the subject. It was her seal of approval that finally decided the winner. Payal and Anjali, with whom Faruqui had gotten quite close on the gritty reality show, were declared the first and second runners up.

The announcement of the winner was not only made during the episode but also on social media platform of AltBalaji. Sharing the picture of the winner, the channel wrote in the caption, “Aaj ki atyaachaari raat is definitely @munawar.faruqui ke naam Congratulations to him and thank you #LockUpp fam for all the.”

Faruqui, who, before entering ‘Lock Upp’, was seeing his shows being cancelled by the Karnataka government, attracted a lot of sympathy and public goodwill by coming across as this boy from a Dongri chawl who had seen poverty, his mother commit suicide and his marriage break up, and had also been abused sexually as a child.

Kangana and he also had a hot exchange initially on his political views, but quite clearly, their differences did not come in the way of the show’s celebrity host from declaring him the winner.
