Lock Upp Finale: Comedian Munawar Faruqui Defeats Payal Rohatgi & Emerges As A Winner, Takes Home Trophy & Prize Money Of Rs 25 Lakh

Comedian Munawar Faruqui Wins 'Lock Upp', Takes Home Winner's Trophy & Cash Prize Of Rs 25 Lakhs
Comedian Munawar Faruqui Released From ‘Lock Upp’ With Winner’s Trophy

He was in jail not long ago for “insulting Hindu gods and goddesses”, a charge he denies, but well past Saturday/Sunday midnight, controversial comedian Munawar Faruqui was released from Ekta Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut ‘Lock Upp’ with a Rs 20 lakh cheque and brand new car.

He was declared 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 Munawar Faruqui had gotten quite close on the gritty reality show, were declared the first and second runners up.

Munawar 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 by coming across as this boy from a Dongri chawl who had seen poverty, his mother commit suicide and his marriage breakd up, and had also been abused sexually as a child.

Kangana and Munawar Faruqui 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.
