Filmmaker Sajid Khan shot for a new song-n-dance number in his upcoming film ‘Humshakals’ for a whopping Rs. 2 Crore!
This makes the song not just the biggest ever number for Sajid but also Bollywood in general, what with Fox and Vashu Bhagnani going all out to make the film special.
“It was an open budget for the song, it’s as simple as that,” informs our source attached to the film.
“The song “‘Piya Ka Bazaar’ appears in the film’s climax and it is special since it features the entire cast of the film. The song has an out and out Indian set up to it and is set in a celebratory mode. The song is sure to impress one and all.” added the source
Since it featured the entire star cast of the film – Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Tamannaah Bhatia, Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta, Sajid wanted a grand Indian canvas to be created for ‘Piya Ka Bazaar’.
“A huge set was mounted in Mumbai with 500 background dancers . This is the largest ensemble that Sajid has ever gathered for a song in a film of his,” the source adds.
Here is 2 Crore Song In Humshakals Movie Video:
“It is a known fact that producer Vashu Bhagnani is a huge supporter of commercial music ingredients in his films. He gave more than what was asked from him when it came to the making of the song. So right from the art design to the costumes to the lighting to the multiple camera set up and most importantly the days required for the shoot, Vashuji and Sajid wanted to make sure that ‘Piya Ka Bazaar’ was a highlight of the film.” said the source excitingly.
When contacted, Sajid didn’t deny that ‘Piya Ka Bazaar’ was the most massive number he had ever put together. He refused to put a number to that though. “My job is to entertain and I would rather like you to enjoy the song,’ he said.
It therefore remains to be seen if all the money put in the song translates to success at the box office.
