A few months ago, reports revealed that the makers of Welcome Back had allegedly spent over Rs. 3 crore to shoot a song featuring John Abraham. Now, film-maker Aditya Chopra’s upcoming movie Dhoom:3 just might break that record and become one of most expensive songs in Bollywood. The track titled Malang is a high energy number and was apparently shot on a whopping budget of over Rs. 5 crore.
“The song features 200 professional gymnasts who were flown in from the US. And yes, the budget is roughly Rs. 5 crore,” says a source. The cost includes the fees of the gymnasts, their costumes and even the elaborate sets.
“The 200 artistes stayed in the city for 20 days as they were training. The humongous set took nearly two months to be created,” adds the source. The Dhoom:3 track will feature Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif.
