Splitsvilla 8 contestant Gaurav Arora as known to most of us, came out about being a transgender last year and had changed his name to Gauri Arora.
She will be soon seen walking down on the ramp in a bikini in the first episode of the show.
Gauri shared -“This is the first time I walked down the ramp after my reconstruction surgery. I felt extremely beautiful.”
She also added – “I was a tad apprehensive about the fact that I had to put on the bikini and walk down the ramp on ‘India’s Next Top Model’ in front of seasoned judges like Milind Soman and Dabboo Ratnani. But that only boosted my zeal.”
Gauri`s bold and commendable step is also an inspiration to those who have not been able to come out yet.
Gauri had also shared in an interview that “I entered ‘Splitsvilla’ as a straight guy, but came out as a changed person and transformed into a woman eventually. I fell for a popular TV actor who came as a guest.”
