This contest ended on 14th Feb 2013.
The TV show involves renovating homes and giving them a makeover, so does the app. It lets you be artistic and create a masterpiece on virtual space. This shows that they maintained the concept both on ground and off ground.
The show is in partnership with two other brands. This contest has been well promoted by both Asian Paints and Century Ply on their social networks. A good synergy has been observed amongst the three brands.

Scope of improvement:
The page has over 3.5L likes and about 9k people talking about it, yet only few comments on posts. They could have made the contest a little more attractive and interactive.
NDTV Goodtimes “A Whole New World” believes in making your home more suited to new changes like an upcoming birth of a child, aging parents moving in or a new married life. Though the show is one of it’s kind in India, the contest isn't very innovative.
The winner will be announced soon and showcased in an upcoming episode.
