NEW DELHI: Veteran Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir recently attended an event in the Indian capital dressing like a woman.
He inaugurated the seventh edition of ‘Hijra Habba’ by wearing a dupatta and a bindi to express his support towards the transgender community.

Gambhir dressed like a woman by putting on a dupatta and a bindi, pictures of which went viral all over the internet.
