The transgender community present on set also blessed contestant Nihal. The episode was titled as India ki Farmaish (India’s requests) where the participants are supposed to sing songs the viewers have requested. Impressed by Nihal’s performance, the transgender people came on stage to extend support. They were so in love with his voice and performance that they blessed him to get whatever he wants in life.

Seeking the opportunity, Bharti disclosed how much she wants to have a daughter. She told them how she truly believes in the cultural tradition that whatever a transgender blesses, it becomes a reality. So, she requested the blessing of having a baby girl for her and her husband. The transgender community on stage obliged and wished she would be blessed with a daughter soon.
