Aseem Trivedi, the fifth contestant to leave the Bigg Boss house this season, says that he’s more than happy as his mission has been successful. The controversial cartoonist claims that he did not participate in the reality show to win, but to meet people, talk to them about his mission and make connections.

The 25-year-old says that he has found true soul mates in co-contestants Gulabi Gang head Sampat Pal and hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani. “Three of us will definitely do something (on lines of activism) when they both come out of the house,” says Aseem, who feels that Sapna should win the show. “She’s so genuine, her mind is pure like a child’s,” he says, unaware that several inmatesbelieve that his relationship with Sapna was beyond friendship. “What?  Of course not. Are they mad?” he says.
However, talking of romance, he admits that when co-contestant Sayantani Ghosh cried professing her feelings for him, he actually felt that she was in love with him.Ask him about host Salman Khan’s criticism about him not ever taking a stand in the house, and he retorts, “I didn’t go there to take stands. It’s just a game, not a place for serious activism. I would rather save my energy for that in real life. I have a lot to do.”
