Her revelations left the other contestants emotional as they learned about the challenges she has faced throughout her life.

“When I was in class VIII, eight of my classmates attacked me. They attempted to remove my clothes to see my sexual organ. I rushed to the staff room to complain. But, instead of consoling me, they asked me to behave like a man,” she said.

“One night, a car approached me, and a stranger asked me, ‘Are you Nadira?’. I said yes and he invited me to the car. He introduced himself as a movie director or producer. Further, the talk changed and he asked me my ‘rate’. I reacted violently and he apologized. I was stubborn that I will not leave the car without the police reaching the spot. They took me to the police station, but they changed the story there. They said that I rushed into their car and asked for money, the police officer hit me with the Lathi and pushed me to the lock-up,” she said.
During her time on Bigg Boss, Nadira Mehrin proudly shared that she has achieved several significant milestones, including being the first transgender person to earn two post-graduate degrees and appearing in a few films. She also expressed her desire to inspire others who are still confined within the confines of their homes by participating in the reality show.
