Can NGINX add an empty payload

I have taken the NGINX training but the following question was not covered.
I am hoping I can get some help from the community. Thank you in advance.

Can NGINX add empty (or static non empty) payload to a request when proxying
to a server in the Location directive (or elsewhere)

For example

Client => NGINX => Server

Client sends
NGINX adds -d '{"version": "1.1"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"
Server receives -d '{"version": "1.1"}' -H
"Content-Type: application/json"

The reason why I am asking is because I have a client that sends requests
without payload and the server expects that payload exists (even if it does
not get processed)

Thank you for your help
