The mansion has been built spread over an area of 18500 square feet, adorned with several aesthetic elements. It has been specially designed by one of Bollywood’s most popular art directors and design expert, Omung Kumar.
“I’m extremely excited for our contestants and viewers as we open the doors of our Bigg Boss Museum. We’ve very carefully crafted each wall with elements that reflect contestants’ ideologies that exemplify the game and its rules. There’s a wall with caricatures of different emotions that denote various shades of a person and the roles they will play through their days of lock-in, hoping to be victorious. The house becomes a home for them and therefore we have balanced out quirky modules with hush toned furniture and bright lighting that will also boost moods and amplify the set-up well,” said Omung Kumar.
