Apparently, each of the contestants will be pitted against each other as padosis or neighbour. The house will reportedly be divided into blocks with each belonging to two inmates. The cameras will keep a tab on the contestants, and this year, 90 cameras will be watching their every move.
“We have more cameras this time as compared to last season. With so many cameras, the house has to look good from every angle. Hence the walls are done up in different ways and also painted with vibrant colours. Then it’s fully lit up all the time,” said the National Award winning director.
Omung Kumar, who particularly pays a lot of attention to the walls, said, “The theme of the 11th season is pop art so every element in the house pops out. In between different colours, we got the black and white element as a breathing space, something to aspire for.
Like the previous years, the house has a swimming pool, a gym and a jail in the lawn area. But this time, the jail has been built underground to make it darker and more frightening. The jail seems to have no amenities other than three string cots. “It is a dangerous looking jail – the kind I had shown in Sarbjit. The ‘prisoners’ can see outside but they will rot inside,” said Kumar, who, along with his team, has taken 55 days to design the house.
