The latest wild card entry to reality TV show Bigg Boss 5, social activist Swami Agnivesh says he’s ready to spread the good vibe in there. “Honestly, I’ve only seen a few episodes of the show and I know there is lot of negativity in there. So, I’ll try to spread positivity and try to bring forward the good in each one of the participants. I  believe that people aren’t bad,” he says.

The 72-year-old saffron-clad Arya Samaj leader, who was in news recently for his estrangement from social activist Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign, adds, “I feel it will be a great platform to connect with the urban youth of the country and spread awareness about our national issues.”

Would that include talking about Anna and reasons behind his disassociation from the campaign too? “I’m not going there to talk about Anna but to spread positivity. So no, I won’t voluntarily talk about him,” says Agnivesh, who alleged  former police officer Kiran Bedi with financial mismanagement of her trust.

Meanwhile, the Web is abuzz with jokes on his entry. “Big Boss house is perfect for Swami Agnivesh. It has both Pooja and Shraddha,” writes Shabana on Twitter.
