Lock Upp: Payal Rohatgi indirecty takes a dig at Mandana Karimi by saying, “Copy cat kise kehte hain”

Payal Rohatgi indirectly took a dig at Mandana Karimi by reminding her that she was Iranian when they both wore the same kind of clothes.

Lock Upp reality hosted by Kangana Ranaut is always full of drama and controversy but sometimes they both mixed with humour and gave new kinds of moments on the show. The same kind of thing recently happened at the show when two how-headed contestants Payal Rohatgi and Mandana wore the same kind of clothes.

On this, Shivam remarked, “Aree… Aaj tum log behne lg rhi ho. Wahh… O shi*! ye to bilkul same hai.”


While directing an indirect taunt toward Mandana without saying her name, Payal said, “Mai kitchen se nikalti hu ye kitchen se niaklte hain, main kaala pehenti hu log kaala pehente hain. Matlab copy cat kisko kehte hain.”

Azma then ask, “Copy cat kisko bol rhe?”

Mandana then highlights that they both wear clothes with different branding.

Shivam on the other remarked on this that Mandana is an “imported quality” while Payal was a “desi quality.”

Payal then said, “Quality aisi hai ki ek Iran ka side product hai, ek bhartiya hai. Baat hi khatam. Made in India-made in Iran, topic over!”

Azma then appreciated Payal by saying, “Made in India… Best Payal” whereas on Shivam on the other hand took Mandana’s side by saying, “Imported cheezein zyada chalti hain.”

Then Azma highlights that Indian products are better than imported ones.

Payal later asks Shivam that can he love imported items even in today’s world, to which Shivam replied by saying, “Meri to chappal bhi made in India hai.”

Payal goes on to highlight the efforts of the Indian government to support the ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative and raises questions about his patriotism.

Note: This is all going like a lightweight talk and not about anyone.
