Babita Phogat will now appear on Kangana Ranaut’s reality show ‘Lockupp.’ Many of the cast members’ names have been revealed for the show, which will premiere on Alt Balaji and MX Player on January 27.
So far, the show has confirmed the appearances of TV actress Nisha Rawal, stand-up comedian Munawwar Farooqui, and model-turned-actress Poonam Pandey. The entry of Rakhi Sawant’s husband Ritesh and Bidaai star Sara Khan, on the other hand, remains a source of intrigue.
Babita says in the promo shared by Ekta Kapoor on Instagram, “You must have seen the film made on me.” But now I’m here to do real riots. Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal tells the story of wrestler Mahavir Phogat, who fights social oppression and chases gold medals in order to make his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat world-class wrestlers. This film starred Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Sanya Malhotra in the lead roles.
At the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Babita won gold in the women’s freestyle 55 kg category. In 2019, she made her television debut as a contestant on the dance reality show ‘Nach Baliye 9’ with her husband Vivek Suhag. She is now preparing for her second show, ‘Lockup.’
Babita will appear on the reality show ‘Lockup,’ according to reports “I’m thrilled to be a part of a show like Lockup. I’ve never done a show that is broadcast 24 hours a day. That’s why I’m interested in being a part of this show. I’m overjoyed and excited. This show will reveal my true identity to the public. Previously, audiences recognized me from the film Dangal. People will now learn about my true personality, as well as my likes and dislikes.”
The lockup will see 16 celebrities imprisoned for 72 days with no access to basic amenities. “You (contestants) have to face your temptations, demons, insecurities, and uncover your deepest truth,” Kangana said at the show’s premiere.
