Estranged team Anna member and saffron-clad social activist Swami Agnivesh is set to enter a completely different world of the TV reality show - Bigg Boss - his close aide confirmed on Monday.

Swami Agnivesh, who fell out with Anna Hazare's team after he was allegedly caught on camera speaking to an unidentified person, whom his former colleagues alleged was a union minister, is likely to enter the Bigg Boss house on Tuesday.

"Swami will spread his message through the programme. Whenever he finds a challenge, he accepts it and that is the reason why he accepted this," said his close aide, Manu Singh.

He will be the fifth male contestant to be a part of the Bigg Boss house, which is dominated by female contestants like Pooja Bedi, Juhi Parmar, Shonali Nagrajan among others.

Swami Agnivesh was in the eye of a storm soon after Hazare's 12 day hunger strike in August when an anonymous video showed him talking to an unidentified person asking him to deal sternly with team Anna.

After lying low for more than a month, Swami Agnivesh had last month alleged that key Team Anna member, Arvind Kejriwal had diverted the money collected at Ramlila Ground to his NGO's account.
