The Budget Of These 7 Hindi Songs Was More Than Some Movies

The songs are an integral part of our movies. The Indian music industry is the largest producer of songs. No other film industry in the world can match the grandeur of our songs. Sometimes they come as a sigh of relief in otherwise no-brainer or a boring movie. And if it’s a musical movie, it’s sone pe suhaga for the audience. Imagine Aashiqui 2 without those mellifluous songs. It’s hard, right! Here’s a list of songs that were visually appealing and took a fortune to make.

1) Malang – Dhoom 3
The song featured Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif. Reportedly, it had 200 gymnasts and the budget of the song was a whopping 5 Crore INR.

2) Tha Kar Ke – Golmaal Returns
By now, everyone knows how crazy director Rohit Shetty is for cars. The 10 most expensive cars back then were used in the song. And not to forget about the 1000 background dancer who featured in the song.

3) Deewani Mastani – Bajirao Mastani
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known to make larger-than-life films. The cost of Deepika Padukone‘s outfits for the songs alone was in lakhs and the overall scale of the song was nothing less than an epic.

4) Gerua – Dilwale
The song featuring Bollywood’s all-time favorite on-screen couple Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol was the first song to be shot in Iceland and the most expensive one to be shot in overseas.

5) Radha Nachegi – Tevar
Reportedly, Sonakshi Sinha‘s lehenga alone cost around 75 Lakhs INR. We wonder what was the budget for the overall production of the song.

6) Saturday SaturdayHumpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
We all know that partying on Saturday is a costly affair. But this was way too much than one can ever imagine. Reportedly, the budget for the song featuring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt was around 3 Crore INR.

7) Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya – Mughal-e-Azam
The evergreen song was made on a humongous budget of 10 Million INR. The 10 Million in 1960 will have a worth of 100 Million in 2017. The music director Naushad gave his approval after 105 rewrites.
