The activist most popular for her campaign to gain entry into the Shani Shingnapur temple, has been long-time champion of woman's rights and hopes to raise some awareness regarding woman's rights through the issue.

Desai also campaigned for women to gain entry in Sabarimala temple, Mahalakshmi temple and the Trimbakeshwar Shiva temple.

Confirming her entry in the show and speaking about her demands for her participation, Desai told Firstpost, "I had a meeting with the producers of the show on 19 August and I have requested them that there be a female as the next voice of Bigg Boss as opposed to a male. I will participate in the show if my demand is met, in this season or the next."

She added that she does not approve of some of the obscene activities that occur in the house. She said, "I hope that with my participation I can raise some more awareness regarding woman's rights considering the popularity of the show. Also there are a lot of obscene activities that happen in the show, which I hope I can bring to an end. I want to see whether the show is scripted or not."

Talking about bringing in a positive change she says, "I will also request other members of the house to send out positive message to the public."

The show is rumoured to premiere on 16 October and it has been gaining a lot of attention for its new format (commoners to join celebrities as participants on the show). Bollywood actor Salman Khan will host the show.
