Lock Upp's Payal Rohatgi Says Kangana Ranaut Uses Alia Bhatt's Name For Publicity, Actress Loses Her Calm As She Tells Her 'Do Not Take My Name' -WATCH VIDEO
Lock Upp has been making headlines in the past few days for multiple reasons. The digital-only-show premiered last night. Kangana Ranaut, who is hosting the show, introduced the contestants. One of the 'controversial celebs' i.e. Payal Rohatgi got into an argument with Kangana. Ahead of her entry as a participant on the show, Payal said that Kangana uses Alia Bhatt's name for the sake of publicity. The actress then asked Payal to talk about her own controversies.

It all started when a reporter asked Payal why she's working in an ALT Balaji show, given her past criticism of the platform. She said that personal opinions may be different from professional equations. She added that even host Kangana had a difference of opinions with producer Ekta Kapoor, but she is now hosting the reality show.

Kangana lost her temper as she said, "Do not piggy back on me. Talk about your own experiences, do not use my past experiences. Do not take my name." Payal told her she only mentioned Kangana as she was sitting right in front of her. "I would have named someone else if you were not present here," she said.

Kangana reacted, "So, you would still talk of someone else's experiences. You are still not saying that you would talk about your own experiences. You just proved my allegations right." For the uninitiated, according to the format of the show, contestants are given a set of charges that they are supposed to defend themselves against during their stint on the show. Payal was told that she cashes in on others' controversies for the sake of publicity.

Responding to Kangana, Payal hit back saying, "Why then do you use others' names? I can also say that you piggy back on Alia Bhatt's name and Gangubai Kathiawadi for the sake of grabbing attention." Kangana once again reminded her not to talk about her and added, "I create my own controversies, that is my opinion about them."

Earlier, Kangana had called Alia Bhatt a 'romcom bimbo'. She also said that Gangubai Kathiawadi's biggest mistake is 'wrong casting'. After the release of the film, without taking Alia's name, Kangana Ranaut wrote on Instagram stories, "Happy to hear theatres are being revived in South film industry with record breaking collections. I hear some baby steps are being taken in Hindi belt also. With recent female centric film which has a big hero and a super star director. They may be baby steps but they are not insignificant. They will be crucial for theatres which are on ventilators here. Great."
