New Delhi: Controversial reality show Lock Up is nearing its finale and is making headlines with the revelations made by its contestants. The Alt Balaji show is hosted by Kangana Ranaut and recently saw the expulsion of TV actor Karanvir Bohra.

Recently, stand-up comedian Munawwar Farooqui shared his secret of facing sexual harassment as a child. Adding to her story, host Kangana Ranaut revealed that she too was touched inappropriately as a child. After hearing her ordeal, contestant Saisha Shinde broke down recounting her story of molestation.


“After hearing you two share all this, and Munavvar talking about how people reacted when he shared it with them, I was reminded of my own experience. Some of the people I told about it said to me ‘That’s why you’re like this. You are too much into sex. You wear women’s clothes, that’s why you’re gay. After that, I never dared to discuss the matter with anyone,” said Sayesha.

Sayyeshaa also said that she was sexually assaulted by a close family member when she was 10 years old, but did not reveal her identity. She revealed that the person who molested her was a few years older than her and did not understand if it was molestation. Later, he realized what it was.


After Kangana asked about confronting the man, Sayyeshaa said she didn’t, but dropped the hint. However, after sharing this secret in the show, the person must have come to know. He clarified that Sayesha and Swapnil are two different people. “Saisha has no qualms in speaking in such circumstances,” he quipped.
