Nowadays Bollywood Filmmakers are quite serious about their work and job so much that they can go any length to get the perfect shot. Yes, Hindi film industry is no less than their foreign counterparts who might not think twice before spending a bomb to get things right.
Here in the article, we are listing 5 occasions where the Bollywood filmmakers have spent a bomb to get the perfect shot. Have a look:
Rs 55 lakh Spent on Katrina Kaif’s Hair Color in Fitoor
This was recently a hot topic on social media where people discussed how a huge number of underprivileged kids would have actually been benefited from the 55 Lakh spent on something temporary like a hair color. Still confused how a hair color can cost this huge sum?
Well, Kat wanted a perfect shade of red for Fitoor and so she zeroed in on a London-based hairstylist. Her jet-setting between India and UK along with the plush stay, and hair color apparently cost the producers of Fitoor a huge amount of Rs 55 lakhs. Now don’t you feel that the 10,000 rupees you spent on straightening was absolutely fine? Do tell your mother the same. Sigh!
Rs 48 lakh Spent on Deepika Padukone’s jewels in Bollywood Film Bajirao Mastani
Playing a historical character isn’t easy. No wonder, you have to wear a lot of heavy jewelries and accessories. While Deepika Padukone did a stunning job as Mastani in Bajirao Mastani, it is believed that in one particular scene the actress as half Hindu and half Persian Mastani was seen wearing jewelry worth Rs. 45 Lakh. Makes sense as all her jewelry were sourced from a heritage jewelry shop, the Delhi-based jewelers called Shri Hari Diagems, a-226-year-old establishment. The total cost of her jewelry in the film was Rs. 5 crore.
The movie poster of Singh is Bliing exhibited a lot of bliing. No wonder, the Khiladi actor loves to do everything in style. Don’t be surprised when I tell you the Turban which Akshay sported in the poster cost the producer a whooping Rs.65 lakh. Wondering, how can a turban be so costly? Well, it was a diamond-studded turban. Missed seeing them? Well, I missed noticing it too. Anyways…
Rs 75 lakh Spent on Sonakshi Sinha’s Lehenga:
The song ‘Ye mera lehenga badda hai mehenga’ suits Sonakshi Sinha perfectly who didn’t shy away from wearing a lehenga of Rs. 75 Lakh in the film Tevar opposite Arjun Kapoor. Yes, the same lehenga that she is wearing in the song ‘Radha Nache Gi’. Now that makes us reconsider the budget of our wedding lehenga – don’t you think so?
Shah Rukh Khan’s most ambitious project Ra One was a talk of the town for various reasons including the budget of the film. While the film bombed at the box-office, let me tell you the costume worn by Shah Rukh Khan in the film as Ra One was Rs 4.5 crore per costume and there were 20 such costumes. Shocking? Well, that’s how the actors, directors and producers meet their perfection level in Bollywood these days.
What are your thoughts on Bollywood spending a ton on these aspects – Yay or simply Nay?
