This will come as news to those who were crushing on Gaurav Arora — the good-looking, soft-natured contestant in the eighth season of Splitsvilla.

Arora, who had admitted to being a bisexual on the reality show, has now undergone a transformation to become Gauri Arora.

With a short bob, enhanced cheekbones, fuller lips and dressed in women’s outfits, the model-actor is living as a woman. Arora also has an Instagram account by the name of Gauri Arora where he has posted several pictures of himself, dressed as a woman.

One of Arora’s posts reads:

You don’t owe people the person you used to be. You don’t have to talk to people who are speaking to the old you. If they want to drag (the) old you out, and you’ve already left that person behind, they don’t get to talk to you. When you’ve gone from weakness to strength, you don’t owe a show of your former self to someone who just can’t wrap their head around your change.

Gaurav has changed his name to Gauri and has undergone an impressive transformation: His muscles have been replaced by gentle, feminine curves and his smoulder, by a big pout.

According to a report in Times of India, Gaurav has not had a sex-change surgery yet, but has got his body hair removed through a laser treatment for a more feminine body.

The reality show star has posted several pictures of the all-new look on his Instagram. He sports some of the most stylish women’s outfits and even poses like a pro. Feel free to take inspiration from these pics: More power to you, Gauri!
