Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10: Dutee Chand introduces the love of her life; says, “Love sees no gender”
Celebrated sprinter Dutee Chand who is currently seen in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10, dedicated her latest performance to the ‘heroine’ in her life.
For the unversed, Dutee is India’s first athlete to openly come out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. She opened up on being in a same-s*x relationship in 2019. The latest promo of the show witnessed Dutee dressed as Aamir Khan and performing to ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ number.
When host Maniesh Paul asks who is the hero in her life, Dutee responded, “Mere life me hero nahi, heroine hai”. Photos of Dutee and her partner are shown. She added, “Love is one thing which sees no gender, caste, colour or creed. Dil jisse chahta hai, usse pyaar ho jaata hai.”

Maniesh then calls Dutee’s partner over a video call. As her partner adorably says ‘I love you’, Dutee goes down on her knees.
Judge Karan Johar says, “There are so many girls and boys who are living in fear and can’t come out. I want everyone to show your story – you are an inspiration Dutee Chand and I hope everyone gets inspired seeing you. I salute you.”
