Social activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, who have been actively advocating her cause of transgenders for nearly 12 years now. She first met Salman Khan on Salman's TV reality show Dus ka Dum, followed by the controversial Sach Ka Saamna two years ago and now Bigg Boss. Speaking about Salman Khan in a telephonic interview with PTI, Laxmi Tripathi said, “Salman Khan, like a true man, had the guts to stand by a transgender having me as a guest on Dus ka Dum. By taking up Bigg Boss I wanted to show that even a transgender can live a normal life with love and harmony, they need not be treated differently."
Laxmi further added, “I thought people need to be told the truth about us, so appeared on Sach ka Saamna. I have done all the controversial reality shows."
Speaking about Pooja Mishra in the Bigg Boss 5 house, Laxmi Tripathi said that Pooja is playing very well. Laxmi said, “Pooja is the footage queen. She has seen previous seasons and knows what sells. So that's what she is doing. She is picking up fights with everyone".
Terming her 42-day stay inside the house as fantastic, Laxmi says she would love to go back inside. "There is so much love inside the house. I made friends with Pooja Bedi, Shonali Nagrani, Juhi Parmar. It was the real Laxmi that you saw on the show. I had forgotten that there were cameras around," said Laxmi.
