As excitement builds up around the new season of Bigg Boss, we bring you a sneak peek into the interiors and many features of the famed house.

The house is built in Karjat, 90 km from Mumbai at ND Studio. The 9000 sq ft property comes with great surprises this season. The outer area ringed by cameras is around 5,500 sq ft. There are 55 cameras and 60 microphones installed on the property.

The house looks very compact, leaving barely enough space for the housemates to spend time by themselves. But after last year's drama involving a single bedroom for the house's 14 housemates, this season the house has two separate bedrooms.

Aritra Mukherjee, editor-in-chief of Bigg Boss (Endemol) says, "In fact, the house is bigger this season because there are three bedrooms.

The bedrooms are unisex this season too.  We have never forced contestants to sleep separately. If they wish to do so it is entirely their choice."

There are different kinds of bedrooms. One has pink walls, pink sheets and crystal lampshades. The second one has green sheets and is slightly smaller than the pink one.

And the third one is for the captain of the house who will get to enjoy a personal bedroom with a private toilet and other privileges.

The jail is back! Double Vaat means punishments galore and the bad guy will surely get locked up.

The kitchen sink has been placed in the garden area to irk the housemates. "The only reason that sink is outside is because the contestants will do more and stay fit," says Mukherjee

An addition to the house is the Zorb, a transparent orb like enclosure in the garden area specially created for the Head-of-House where entry is 'by invitation only'.

Now the Head-of-House can spend quality time with his/her confidantes and plot some much-expected manipulation.

The design of the house is transparent, that is, one can view the entire expanse of the house from the entrance -- bedrooms, outdoor and living sections.

It is also moulded into different shapes and sizes and gives a bubble gum effect. Adding to the bubble effect is a pink open kitchen in the left corner of the living room.

There is a dining area next to the kitchen that extends to the garden.

"Bigg Boss always had an integrated dining area but this time there is a separate dining area," says Mukherjee.

The outdoor area has gained more prominence with a pool and gymnasium.

Designer Shayam Bhatia has designed the house. With over 55 cameras following their every move 24x7, the 14 housemates will barely be out of Big Boss's sight.
