Transgender beauty queen Nitasha Biswas, who has represented India at international level is all set to make her small screen debut with Dating In The Dark. Biswas believes rejections are a part of life for a transwoman in India.

"Being a transwoman in India, rejections are a part of our lives. We have faced and continue to face rejections from the workplace, friends, family and whom we fall in love with. I believe, love has no gender and it is this positive attitude and confidence that I hold that lets me believe, I will find my soulmate who will embrace me regardless," Nitasha said in a statement.

Nitasha was born as a boy in a conservative Bengali family. She is entering the world of TV to find love.

It was when she was 22 that the transition for the sex change operation began and at 26, she won the crown of India's first trans beauty queen.

On her experience on the show, she said: "My experience on Dating In The Dark was quite eventful. I went on two dates and though I did not find love, I'm glad, I could confess to my second date about my journey on national television without any hesitation. It took a lot of courage but it was great to see my date had no qualms spending time with me."
