He chose fibre, POP, etc., over thermocol and plastic so as to keep the interiors light and long-lasting. He also said that this consideration for the environmental health is significant and that he expects others to follow the same.
The visuals are vivid and vivacious. The entire area of 18,400 sq.ft is designed keeping in mind the theme of "museum“

The grand entrance along with the grass beds are chosen to indicate the wild and untamed nature of the contestants.

One of the quotes read, ‘Dear Karma, I have a list of people that you missed.'
