There was a lot of buzz that you are part of Lock Upp? How excited are you for the show? 

It’s always good to be part of any buzz especially something as revolutionary as a metaverse game show, slash, a reality show on an on OTT platform. Even I'm very excited and looking forward to be the part of the unique as well as challenging game show.

How will you deal with host Kangana and her ideologies on the show?

Well, Kangana and me definitely share very different ideologies in the political space. However, I think she is phenomenal actress who speaks her mind with conviction and that’s something I admire about her and  can relate to. As am equally dedicated to my ideology/ point of view and speak my mind fearlessly. So, I think Ranaut will be a worthy jailer and an adversary.
