In an interview with the Times of India, Swami Agnivesh said that he had heard about the show Bigg Boss, but had never seen any episode. When he got a call for the show, many people advised him not to appear on the show because there is a lot of negativity. “I have spent my entire life in social transformation and hopefully will try and bring about some changes in the house," Swamiji told TOI.
Meanwhile, Swami Agnivesh also told that he is entering the house of the Bigg Boss season 5 with a selfish motive. The Hindu social activist said, “I want to ignite the youth through this show. The entire society has to come forward."
