Omung Kumar on challenges faced while designing Bigg Boss OTT 2's set

"We are up against ourselves only to not repeat anything that we did last year. It has to be different than Bigg Boss Hindi, Bigg Boss Marathi, Bigg Boss Malayalam. Since it's on OTT, a different flavor comes over here, and it's 24*7. The flavor of Bigg Boss OTT 2 is modern and it's nice."

Omung on what he feels about Bigg Boss OTT 2's set

"Bigg Boss OTT 2 is very different than the last time. For now, I can just say that the set is very beautiful, and I will show you'll the look soon."

Omung doesn't restrict himself when it comes to designing sets, and along with Bigg Boss OTT 2, he has also created the set for the mythological series, Shiv Shakti

Challenges faced while creating a set for a mythological show

"The challenges are that people know that they have seen something like this before. So, the challenge is to make something of your own, which becomes larger than life, and people will follow this for lifelong. That's why while designing the Shiv Shakti's set, the biggest challenge was how do I redefine Shiv Ji's sitting 'tapasya' (deep meditation) place, and I redesigned it in a cave, in the biggest mountain ever where Shiv Ji was sitting inside and doing tapasya and how would he look, how would I make the cave in such a believable place that 'Yes, he did exist over here'."
