NEW DELHI: Saisha Shinde, the first transgender fashion designer in India, was former Swapnil Shinde, prior to the sex reassignment surgery. She is currently seen as a contestant in Ekta Kapoor's reality show 'Lock Upp.'
In a recent episode of 'Lock Upp', Saisha opened up before Payal Rohatgi and Poonam Panday about the time when she was mentally abused in a relationship. Saisha revealed that she was in a relationship with a man who used to mentally abuse her.
During the discussion, Poonam revealed that she was physically abused by her estranged husband Sam for almost four years. Following this, Saisha Shinde also shared a similar experience and claimed that she was mentally abused in a relationship too.
"Even I was abused in a relationship but it wasn’t physical, it was mental abuse on another level. He made me feel like I am sh*t. He used to stand outside my door and just wait thinking that someone will come and I'll cheat on him. And, let's say if I cheat on him, he'll catch me red-handed and he will use it against me. He used to climb on the terrace, go on the pipeline, stand on the pipeline, open the blinders of the bathroom and see slowly if I am mast********, to use that against me," she said.
Following this, Payal Rohatgi asked Saisha, "Why can’t you mastu*****?" To this, the fashion designer replied, "Because that’s the reason then that I don’t want to have s*x with him. Back then, I thought maybe he was saying the right thing but I was never happy in there. Physically, I was never happy at all. I used to always wonder, ‘kya mujhe samajh hi nahin aa raha hai’ because I was a woman inside who was having s*x with a gay man. Obviously, something was wrong but I told myself that I am gay only."
For the unversed, Saisha Shinde is a renowned designer who has worked with actors like Kangana Ranaut, Kareena Kapoor among others.
