In the promo, Kangana and Munawer are seen locking horns right from the start. Kangana asked him, “Menwar, why are you here? I wish you weren’t here to mess with me. Mazaak kar rai rai hu yaar. Joke hm bhi tuh mar saket hina (I’m just kidding. I can crack a joke right?).” Munawwar replied, “Bas thuda Funny Nahi Tha (just wasn’t too funny).”
Munawar added, “Mujji’s comedy itself is changing Nahi Karna Hai. Kalakaar kranti nahi la paaya aaj tak (I don’t want to change anything from my comedy. No artist has been able to revolutionize their work).” At this time, Kangana was shocked, noting that she was one artist to do so. She said, “Agar yahan pe saza-e-maut hoti toh inko de di jaati (I would have pronounced the death sentence against him if he allowed it).” Beside her, comedian Sunil Pal is seen laughing.
Munawwar said: Mereko dhamkiyan mat dijiye (Do not threaten me).
In tweets published in 2020 and 2021, Munwar criticized Kangana for her comments on nepotism and other issues. Both are expected to draw attention to the show once again due to their very different political ideologies.
Last year, Munwar spent a month in jail in Indore after the son of the BJP MLA filed an FIR report accusing the comedian of hurting religious sentiments at one of his festive shows. Later in November, he came under fire after Bengaluru police refused permission to attend his stand-up comedy show in the city amid protests by Hindu groups.
Other Lock Upp contestants include Nisha Rawal, Karanvir Bohra, Poonam Pandey and Babita Phogat.
