'Bigg Boss house full of negative people like Gauhar, Kamya, Andy'
After spending just one week inside the Bigg Boss house, yoga instructor-cum-actor Vivek Mishra makes an early exit tonight, October 24.
Vivek says, “I knew that I would be nominated, but never expected to get eliminated so soon. I feel blessed to be out of the house, back to sanity. The house is full of negative people like Gauhar Khan, Kamya Panjabi and Andy. Everybody is playing a game.”
He participated in Bigg Boss because he wanted to spread awareness about his unique style of naked yoga, he says.
Taking over from Sangram, he managed to conduct a few early morning sessions of yoga with the other housemates.

'They made mockery of my profession'
His confrontations with Kushal after he caught him mocking him about his yoga, and his brawl over household chores were the high points of Vivek’s stay in the house.
Says the aggrieved yoga instructor: “When they got to know about my profession, they made a mockery of it. I don’t mind if they are uninterested in learning yoga from me but I don’t tolerate it if someone speaks ill about my profession from which I earn my bread and butter.”

'Naked yoga helps you love your body'
Vivek Mishra was relatively unknown before he became a participant. He specialises in naked yoga postures and techniques.
So, what exactly are the benefits of ‘naked yoga’?
“This is an ancient form of yoga which I learnt from a Brazilian in Goa. Other asanas I have learnt from a place near Delhi.
“Everybody is God’s favourite child and naked yoga helps you love your body, get rid of inhibitions. Appreciate your physical appearance, be confident. It reduces stress and anxiety, helps you to do anything in life.”
What if someone doesn't want to undress?
“We ask them to wear yoga briefs or a bikini if they are not comfortable. Although people practising naked yoga for the first time often find it hard to concentrate and focus, the problem often disappears after some time, giving way to a new experience,” said the propagator of the fad.

'I had met Kushal before but he completely denied having met me'
Vivek claims that he is India’s first naked yoga trainer and he teaches others asanas as well.
He has been teaching naked yoga for the last five years. “I take personal classes, teach in groups and also do workshops for corporates. I have trained Romanian singer Edward Maya and Shane Polluck. I have many Indian celebrity students but I don’t want to name them.”
He has one ambition: to teach naked yoga to actor Ranbir Kapoor!
“Because he is young, hot and the current heart-throb. He can inspire everyone in a positive way.”
When Vivek and Kushal had a verbal spat in the house over some household chore, Vivek told Kushal not to interfere in his personal space. He also told Kushal that he should remember that Vivek is not Candy Brar and he should know where to draw the line.
Who is the mysterious Candy?
“Kushal was dating her but woh maarta peetta tha. I had met him through Candy a few times. But in the house he completely denied ever having met me.”

'Kamya Panjabi is a footage queen'
Vivek exposed facts about Armaan’s personal life as well.
“Armaan has been living with Tanya Singh for a while. She’s an old friend, a divorcee, who had tried a stint in acting.”
Vivek wants Tanisha Mukherjee to win the competition.
"Tanisha is a very nice girl. I have found a good friend in her. I would like her to win the show. Kamya (Panjabi) is a footage queen and is also playing the game well," concludes Vivek
