Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who is basking in the success of her new reality show ‘Lock Upp’, recently revealed that the show’s concept was different when it was pitched to her. She also opened up about what made her get on board to host the show.

‘Lock Upp’ has a team of the most controversial celebrities locked up in a jail-like setup with basic amenities. Ever since it has released on February 27, audiences have been widely accepting it as a source of entertainment.

On being asked about her thoughts before signing the project, Ranaut told ANI that the show didn’t actually come to her as ‘Lock Upp’.

“It didn’t come as ‘Lock Upp’. It came as a collaboration,” Ranaut said.

“So Ekta Kapoor and Ruchikaa Kapoor came and they said we want to collaborate with you for your digital debut and we have a couple of ideas of the reality show for you to host,” the 34-year-old actor shared.

Ranaut revealed that the team built the concept of ‘Lock Upp’ together and the brainstorming took a “good 6-7 months” for the final project.

“The more I interacted with them and got to know what she wanted to do, the more I became convinced and the show happened gradually,” said Ranaut.

‘Lock Upp’ is live-streamed on digital platforms MX Player and ALTBalaji.

Meanwhile, on the film front, Ranaut will soon be seen in movies including ‘Tejas’, ‘Dhaakad’, ‘Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda’, ‘Emergency’, and ‘The Incarnation: Sita’.

She is also producing the upcoming dark comedy ‘Tiku Weds Sheru’ under her production house, Manikarnika Films.
