Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Bollywood multi-hyphenate Farhan Akhtar on Thursday attended the trailer launch of his home production ‘Mirzapur 3’ along with the star cast of the much-anticipated series.

Speaking about the large fan following enjoyed by the crime thriller across the globe, Farhan said, “Wherever I go in the world, I face three questions.

I’m glad that I have answers to all three questions now,” sending the packed ballroom into splits.

The filmmaker-producer-actor, however, refrained from making any remark on ‘Don 3’, which has been facing the wrath of a section of the fans for replacing Shah Rukh Khan with Ranveer Singh for the titular role.

The trailer of the upcoming season promises more blood, gore, drama, and politics.

Talking about the the shoot, Vikas said, “Kasol, where we shot my scenes, is stunning and a must-visit for all travel enthusiasts. It was beautiful, magical… Weather-wise, it was cold in the middle of the night during our shoot. However, we had a super time shooting there.”

By

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) The house is set and the doors are ready to open to welcome the contestants of ‘Bigg Boss OTT 3’, which this year is themed around ‘magic’.

Filmmaker and art director Omung Kumar, who has always designed the ‘House’ for the controversial reality show, said that each element has been carefully chosen to evoke intrigue and surprise.

Talking about the thought behind the new design, Kumar told IANS: “We wanted the ‘Bigg Boss OTT 3’ House to be incredibly unique and vibrant. As a designer, I believe in the magic of transformation. Following the success of last year’s ‘sustainability’ theme, this season posed a fresh challenge to create something equally captivating.”

Kumar and production designer Vanita Garud have given a new twist to the House. At the entrance, two huge anonymous statues guarding the House welcome the housemates. Dragons guard the premises, while two-sided walls showcase different faces on each side, adding to the House’s illusionary charm.

The theme of locks and keys weaves through the decor of the entire House.

The bedroom, designed like a time-warped theatre of a fantasy world, evokes the charm of silhouette cutout backdrops. The beds are placed uniquely to foster interaction and bonding among the housemates.

The kitchen resembles a quaint vineyard, complete with stone walls and whimsical wine barrels, creating a cozy yet playful vibe. A large bridge connects the living room and the storeroom, suspended over a water-printed carpet.

“In alignment with our theme, we aimed to deliver an experience unlike any other seen before. Our design choices, from incorporating keys and locks to featuring grand dragons and two-sided walls with different faces, contribute to the magical ambiance. The keys and locks are a personal favourite — they represent how the contestants are locked in and have to unlock new aspects of themselves.”

Kumar is now looking forward to the reaction of the contestants of the show to be hosted by Anil Kapoor.
