Chandramukhi's Kotha

The larger-than-life sets, including the Chandramukhi's kotha perfectly captured the world of the character. Desai's attention to detail made every frame a visual treat.

Paro's Haveli

Desai's sets for "Devdas" transported us to the grandeur of early 20th-century Kolkata. The iconic havelis, with its intricate carvings and majestic staircase, became the perfect backdrop for the tragic love story.

Stunning Backdrop of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, released in 1999, brought together Desai and Bhansali once again, resulting in another stunning collaboration.

Desai's Magical Touch

He enhances the emotional undertones of the story. From the picturesque landscapes of Italy to the vibrant and colorful interiors of the Indian households, every set captured the essence of the narrative.

Khamoshi's Aesthetics

Released in 1996, Khamoshi The Musical was Bhansali's directorial debut and marked the beginning of his collaboration with Desai. The highlight was the beautifully designed house where the couple lived, which showcased Desai's exceptional sense of aesthetics.
