Social activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, who has been evicted from the Bigg Boss 5 house, has all praise for reality show host Salman Khan. She says that she wanted to highlight the cause of transgenders on the show and the Bollywood actor had the guts to stand by a transgender like her. She is happy that her purpose on the show is served.

Talking to the PTI, Laxmi Narayan 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."

However, Laxmi Narayan Tripathi has been actively advocating her cause for 12 years now. She had her first brush with reality TV via Salman's show Dus ka Dum, followed by the controversial Sach Ka Saamna two years ago and now Bigg Boss 5. She 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."
