Palakkad: Praveen and Rishana are on cloud nine as they tie the knot on Valentine’s Day. It's a dream-come-true for them after fighting against all odds. Praveen Nath, a native of Elavancherry in Palakkad and Rishana Aishu who hails from Kottakkal in Malappuram have the blessings of their family and friends.

Praveen and Rishana suffered a lot of hardships ever since they revealed their identities. Even though their respective families refused to accept them in the beginning, the couple’s love was enough to conquer their hearts.

The families didn’t disown them and held them close. A successful body builder, Praveen won the Mister Kerala contest in the transgender category in 2021. He was a finalist in the international body building championship that was held in Mumbai in 2022. Currently, he works as an advocacy coordinator at ‘Sahayathrika’.

Meanwhile, Rishana is the winner of Miss Malabar beauty contest. She works at a private firm in Thrissur. Moreover, Rishana finds time to pursue her passion of modelling too.
