Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut has been actively promoting her reality show Lock Upp on Instagram while also hosting the show on weekends. Kangana has now mentioned filmmaker Karan Johar in her yet another post about the show's popularity. The actress announced Lock Upp has gone past 200 million views and suggested that Karan Johar will now be crying in hiding.
The 35-year-old actress shared a note on her Instagram account on Thursday. The post read, “As lock up hits 200M views .... Sari changu mangu sena/media of cruella /papajo along with him, going to cry chup chup ke… itne papad belne ke baad bhi dekho 200M aur abhi aage aage dekho hota hua kya, tere rone ke din as gaye papa jo (As Lock Upp hits 200 million views, the entire army of chipmunks/media of cruella/ papa jo along with him, are going to cry in hiding. Despite them trying so hard we have got 200m views. Now see what is going to happen next. Your days to cry are here now, papa jo).”
Kangana Ranaut has not been in good terms with Karan Johar ever since she dubbed him ‘the flagbearer of nepotism’ during her appearance on his chat show, Koffee With Karan.
Earlier, Kangana had made a mention of Hrithik Roshan as well while talking about how the show's performance is a matter of concern for him. She had written on her Instagram Stories, “Log paanch ungliyan mila ke haath jodd rahe hain. Waise gala toh che ungliyon walo ka bhi sookh raha hai (People are putting their five fingers together for my forgiveness. Even ones with six fingers have dry throats right now).”
Not long ago, the captivity-based reality show Lock Upp became the highest-watched reality show in OTT space with 100 million views in just 19 days. Calling it an incredible feat, Kangana Ranaut had said, "I'm overwhelmed with the love and affection that Lock Upp is receiving from the viewers. This proves that the concept of the show is unique and highly entertaining. The views on the show are proof that Ekta Kapoor's vision has once again hit bullseye, and that along with the huge reach that MX Player has reveals that together, they know the audience pulse better than anyone else on OTT. Lock Upp is only going to get bigger and more fearless from this point on!"
