Abhay Deol floored by the sets of his new show on Zee TV
Ever since its announcement last week, Zee TV’s path-breaking new show ‘Connected Hum Tum’ has got the country buzzing about its new age concept … Six real women living their lives on national television …! Well, add to that, the fact that it has Bollywood’s “thinking” actor Abhay Deol as the host and it isn’t any wonder that everyone wants to know more about it …
Now, Zee TV brings you the first look at the uber cool sets of the show which instantly caught Abhay’s eye as he walked in! When most people think “sets of a TV show”, they imagine a typical, over-the-top, garish setup that is loud and ostentatious enough to create a “larger-than-life” feel for the show. Like a breath of fresh air, the sets of ‘Connected Hum Tum’ pack in a pleasant surprise! The show is all set to be shot against a backdrop of a tastefully done, modern home. Much like Abhay’s personality, the rooms and furniture have maintained a minimalistic look with clean lines, vibrant, young hues, elegant furnishings, new age gadgets and modern graffiti. The swish set has been designed by actor Rajat Kapoor’s wife Meenal Agarwal, an acclaimed interior decorator.
“When we visualized the sets, we wanted it to be a house that you’d imagine someone like Abhay to live in himself. The entire feel of the sets had to reflect his sensibilities, aesthetics and personality. The sets are an extension of Abhay as a host.” Said Meenal.
“When I walked onto the sets on the first day of the shoot, my first reaction was that it felt like being back at home in my living room. I think Meenal has done a fantastic job at making the house feel warm and inviting while being modern and minimalistic – just the way I like it!” said Abhay while speaking about the sets.
