When it comes to describing one’s relationship with their homes, the words ‘sanctuary’ and ‘safe haven’ are no longer figurative as we complete one year in lockdown. Over the course of the year, the definition of a home and the meaning of spending time with our loved ones has dramatically been altered as people were compelled to stay indoors. With a unique focus on personal décor, ‘Asian Paints Where The Heart Is’ Season 4, explored the dynamic between celebrities from different walks of life and their homes. By showcasing the personal space and décor sensibilities, the original web series has been appreciated for its earnest attempt to bring viewers closer to their favourite celebrity. And this season’s views and engagement is 110 million, which is a 17 per cent increase from the previous one.
‘Asian Paints Where The Heart Is’ Season 4 had the likes of Rajkumar Rao, Shankar Mahadevan, Smriti Mandana, Tamanna Bhatia, Anita Dongre, Prateek Kuhad, Shakti Mohan and Mukti Mohan open their doors to viewers, offering a glimpse into who they are off-screen and off the field. The show also touched upon the beauty of relationships and how shared love for a home strengthens it. For instance how Bollywood dark horse Rajkummar Rao knew his house was for him when he felt an instant connection to it, the moment he stepped over the threshold. The time and effort musical genius Prateek Kuhad spent decorating his home gave him a sense of belonging. From inspiring them to take bold chances with décor choices to bring a sense of calm to their being, the home means something different for music maestro Shankar Mahadevan and Czarina of Fashion Anita Dongre respectively. But a common sentiment that runs through all celebrity homes is – family, which includes their four-legged companions. The new season captured these real, lived-in, warm spaces of the celebrity’s homes that are truly theirs, a space that deeply resonates with them and reflects their true self.
Season 4 also introduced new elements to the show such as richer décor stories of the celebrities and their homes. With a spaces-first approach, viewers got to see more of their favourite star’s home: whether it’s a bold change that reflects décor confidence or a minor choice that shows a rare glimpse into their personal experience. The season also brought another new and exciting aspect for ardent fans where a lucky viewer, through a contest on Asian Paints website won special memorabilia belonging to the celebrity for every episode.
The legacy of ‘Asian Paints Where The Heart Is’ lies in the reality that this show has always been a sense of discovery for the viewer. Be it through a simple colourful wall, unique collectables, or through curated décor elements, the show has brought to life a wide variety of homes across the country and has set a true visual benchmark in this space. A strong connection has been forged between the show and consumers as Asian Paints has gone on to showcase 29 homes, 34 celebrities garnering more than 360 million views and engagement in the last four years.
