It might happen sometime that the film goes down the drain but the song of that particular movie turns to be the biggest hit like Sheela Ki Jawani from the movie Tees Maar Khan. That is why filmmakers invest so much to make the song so glamorous! Crores are spent on making these songs so impressive. Here are some of the most expensive songs ever produced in Bollywood!
The song ‘Saturday Saturday’ was from the movie Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania which was produced by Karan Johar. The song was shot in a massive set that cost the producer around 3 Crores. Must have to say that’s an expensive Saturday night out!
The movie Dhoom 3 had this song called ‘Malang’. This turned out to be one of the most expensive songs as it required at least 200 gymnastic dancers that came down from the USA only for this song!. Both the actors and gymnastic dancers were given 20 days prior training before the shoot. All their dance costumes were also sourced from the USA. The cost for this song was 5 Crores! Ooops
