Beautiful bloom, Zain! Congratulations on purchasing this plant. Now you may need to figure out the real name of your plant.

It is pretty hot in summer in Bangalore (37 centigrade) and does not get very cold here, maybe dropping to 10 centigrade at night in winter. Need to re-pot it once the temperatures begin to warm a bit in February. I posted my ladies slipper pictures some time back:
