The Lock Upp episode started with Saisha getting upset when advised that she is probably not allowed to smoke as all doorways had been shut. She began shouting and stated she didn’t take care of guidelines of the jail. She received to smoke and Kaaranvir known as Saisha “he” by mistake. Nisha Rawal then urged everybody to take additional care and be sure that they handle Saisha with “she, her”. When questioned if she even knew what Saisha needed, Nisha stated, “Last night, we had a discussion and she understands it is different. She also gets that people do not do it on purpose but we should be extra careful.”
Munawar Faruqui slammed Nisha for shouting and stated, “I do not think Saisha needs anyone to stand for her.” Nisha then stated, “If we cannot respect her choice in this jail, what do you think the world will do? She feels choked and cannot talk about it by herself.” Saisha started crying as Nisha and Munawar fought over the matter.
However, Saisha later stated, “I am glad this happened. Now, people will see what a transwoman goes through. Even for something as small as the pronouns. How will you feel if I call you (Kaaranvir) she or Poonam he all the time?” Later, she was heard saying, “My mom also calls me Swapnil sometimes. I understand my mom’s agony, of course I get that you do not have any intentions of non-acceptance.”
