Bigg Boss 14 House

Like always, this year too, the house of Bigg Boss has been designed by Omung Kumar. He has given the house an ultra-modern feel. Talking about designing the house, Kumar shared in a statement, ““We ideated on the theme of the show and agreed on keeping it futuristic as we all were looking at moving ahead from the current scenario. There is a mix of funky bright colours and metallic hues blended in a way that stands out. There are also no straight lines, and we have used a lot of curves on each surface. Right from the entrance to different zones in the house, to the dining area, the sleeping area, and even the confession room, each part of the house is unique and explores our theme in a better way.”
