Gauri Arora who underwent a reconstruction surgery last year is all set to participate in the new season of India's Next Top Model. Gauri, previously Gaurav was part of the eight season of MTV's Splitsvilla where she was quite open about her sexuality.
She will now walk the ramp clad in a bikini along with other contestants in the first episode of the popular reality show. This will be Gauri's first appearance on the small screen after she went through a courageous transition.
While talking to Mumbai Mirror, Gauri said “I was a tad apprehensive about the fact that I had to put on a bikini and walk down the ramp in front of seasoned judges but that only made my resolve stronger. It takes a lot of courage to accept the reality and come out in public. A lot of people out there already know about my struggle''.
The third season of India's Next Top Model will be judged by Milind Soman, Malaika Arora Khan and Dabboo Ratani. It will go on air from this Saturday.
