The Big Boss house
A ‘bigg’ part of the show is the Big Boss house. Every season, the house is styled differently. From its furniture to its entire decor, the house is as much of interest to the audience as it is to the housemates. With Season 12, the makers have decided to give the Bigg Boss house a fresh look. Indianexpress.com got an exclusive peek at the house ahead of the grand premiere as the makers decided to give a tour of the beach-themed house. Every little thing has been tweaked and twisted to give the contestants the feel of a beach. The kitchen counter is boat-shaped, while the bedroom area boasts of a design akin to sea waves, with blue patterns adorning the walls and the carpet area.
“The beachy tranquil décor of the Bigg Boss house may lure the contestants into thinking that their journey in the house will be a relaxed one, but the out-of-the-box tasks will quickly pull them back to reality,” Abhishek Rege, CEO, Endemol Shine India, said in a statement earlier.
