The first season of Ekta Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut's Lock Upp came to an end on Saturday night with a 'badass finale'.

After spending almost 2 and a half months inside the 'jail',  finalists Munawar Faruqui, Payal Rohatgi, Prince Narula, Shivam Sharma, Anjali Arora and Azma Fallah stepped out. 

Kangana, who hosted Lock Upp, was given the power to choose the winner of the first season of the show. Munawar, Payal and Anjali made it to the top 3. Kangana then declared Munawar as the winner of Lock Upp Season 1. The comedian took home Rs. 20 lacs, a car and also won an all-expense-paid trip to Italy. After winning the reality show, he got a hug from Kangana. Payal ended her journey as the first runner-up and Anjali came third.
