Ever since Eleven ripped open a portal between Hawkins and the Upside Down in 1983, similar rifts have been opening up in the most unexpected places including our world now. In celebration of the upcoming return of Stranger Things, rifts will start appearing on some of the most iconic monuments around the globe. As part of this unique initiative, The Gateway of India joins the world stage alongside a special list of 15 prestigious landmarks, across 14 countries like the Empire State Building in New York, Duomo Square in Milan, Bondi Beach in Australia, Malecon Barranquilla in Colombia and The Wawel Castle in Krakow, amongst others to capture the love of the fans and showcase the show’s most unforgettable moments.

In anticipation of Stranger Things 4 Vol. 1 which premieres today, Aamchi Mumbai was treated to a grand celebration for the fans with a one-of-a-kind projection mapping on the Gateway of India. Taking over the night skies of Mumbai, the heritage monument was lit up with a larger-than-life display of popular elements from the series. In a grand reveal, the iconic monument turned into a massive canvas, giving us glimpses of our favorite characters including Eleven, Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas, Max, and the gang, along with all the mayhem that’s in store for them in the Upside Down. The reaction of the crowd was a moment to savor as they were left awestruck by the stunning projection of the ‘rift’ in a truly immersive experience.
