Lock Up Grand Premiere Live Updates: Kangana Ranaut’s show airs on MX Player
New Delhi: Ekta Kapoor and MX Player’s show ‘Lock Up’ will premiere at 10 PM on MX Player and ALT Balaji. The never-before-seen fearless reality show ‘Lock Up’ is already in the news and is making headlines these days.
The show will be live streamed 24×7 but will also have one hour episodes that will be streamed every day from 10 PM to 11 PM for 72 days.
According to sources, the lock up will challenge the contestants to survive in extreme conditions where they have to win tasks to achieve basic necessities.
The show was recently in trouble after it was stopped by the City Civil Court of Hyderabad. After taking note of a video clip of the show’s trailer, the court issued an ad-interim injunction on the release of the upcoming show, observing that it is similar to the story of petitioner Sanobar Baig and the concept of ‘The Jail’. However, a day later, the Hyderabad court quashed the stay order and allowed Kangana-hosted ‘Lock Up’ to stream as planned.
It all started when Hyderabad based businessman Sanobar Baig saw the promo of the show and found similarity with his story and script of the show called ‘The Jail’.
According to him, he had already shared the concept with Abhishek Rege of Endemol Shine India.
It was written by Shantanu Ray and titled Anand. Sanobar filed a legal complaint of plagiarism and hence there was apprehension that the show would not air on the scheduled date and time.
But now the audience will be able to watch this show tonight. 16 contestants will compete for infrastructure in this show. Comedian Munavvar Farooqui, model and actress Poonam Pandey, wrestler Babita Phogat, actress Nisha Rawal and television actor Karanvir Bohra are some of the confirmed names.
