The businessman from Madhya Pradesh was eliminated from the show for disregarding the rules and being a tyrant. In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com Shivashish shared, “It was an unfair decision, but I am happy that I stayed strong on my stand. I knew I was not wrong and there was no way I would have let myself be targeted. I have always held firm to my beliefs and I did the same. Yes, it’s sad that I was asked to leave but I would have never compromised on my self-righteousness.”
Earlier this week, captain Romil Chaudhary had named Shivashish for the jail punishment. Stating that he did not deserve the same, Shivashish did not budge from his stand even after being warned by Bigg Boss. Post which Bigg Noss not only evicted him, but also nominated all contestants for next week’s eviction.
Ask him if Romil’s decision caused his exit, Shivashish Mishra said, “Absolutely! I hold Romil wholly and fully responsible. As seen in the episode, there were so many people who supported me because they knew I did not deserve the punishment. On the contrary, the real villains were even ready to go to the jail but he did not relent. He had a personal grudge against me and it’s only because of him that I am out of the game.”

Interestingly, he has been the only one in Bigg Boss 12 to cause a rift between the Happy Club. Talking about the same, he said, “I wanted to only show the truth of their unity. They behave as if they will die for each other but that’s all fake. I never tried to ignite a fire but only presented the reality. And you saw how their unity soon crumbled. I also feel the show was a little biased towards them. When we managed to get all of them nominated, there was no eviction, otherwise, we had double evictions.”
And when asked how true are the friendships formed in the show, Shivashish said, “Equations in the Bigg Boss house change every day. I think my bonding with Sree stood against the custom. We set a different example. It was a real friendship between us, and we stood by each other throughout. It was a pure and strong relationship that will be remembered for long.”
Sharing his two cents on the remaining housemates, the businessman said, “If Sreesanth manages to control his anger and impulsive behaviour, he has everything to be a winner. As for the non-deserving ones, I think its Deepak Thakur and Somi Khan. They follow the herd mentality and have no individual personality.”
While he was on the show, Shivashish Mishra and his partner Saurabh Patel were accused of lying about their identity. They both were said to be struggling actors. When asked to clarify the same, the 26-year-old said, “There is no truth to it. Yes, modeling, photoshoots, bodybuilding, acting are my passions but it’s not my profession. I have done it just for enjoyment. If I was an actor or even trying to be one, I would have done everything to stay in the game. I recently set up a logistics business and I would want to focus on the same now.”
On the episode, Salman also seemed quite upset with Shivashish. When asked if he felt let down by the host, Shivashish said, “See it was not his personal call, so I have no complaints against him. It has been around two months that we are interacting with him and we share a great bond. I have no hard feelings against him. It was the protocol of the show, and although I know it was unfair, but I can’t blame him.”
He further shared, “I would like to tell all my fans and supporters that whatever may happen, always stand for the right. You are answerable to just yourself. Stick to your beliefs what may come. Also, thank you for all the love and respect that you guys gave me. I know I wouldn’t have been evicted so soon if it was a usual eviction.”
Lastly, when we asked Shivashish Mishra that would he go back to Bigg Boss given another chance, he exclaimed loudly, “Never!”.
