The song had everything it needed to be a blockbuster. From Honey Singh to Akshay Kumar‘s swag and Sonakshi Sinha‘s moves, the song defined the perfect ‘Party’ song. The location of the song was a pub in Bangkok with almost 600 foreign dancers and well, judging the popularity of the song, we think it was totally worth it.

2) Malang (Dhoom 3)– 5 Crores


Yash Raj Films spent a whopping 5 crores to film this majestic track from Dhoom 3, starring Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif. YRF made sure that dancers from the USA were flown to Mumbai and they also set up a training camp in here for 20 days. Special dresses were made for all the 200 gymnasts that were a part of this blockbuster song.

3) Tha Karke (Golmaal Returns)– 3.5 Crores

Malika Sherawat set the floor on fire with her moves as Jalebi Bai in Double Dhamaal and it cost the makers an insane amount of 1.5 crores making it the only good thing about the movie according to the audience. The song was every party’s life for a very long time, all thanks to Sherawat’s dance moves.

10) Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya (Mughal-E-Azam)– 1 Lakh in the year 1960

The song was the most expensive song filmed during that time costing a whopping 1 lakh which was a huge amount in the 60’s. The makers took 12 years to complete the shooting and also had to deal with financial problems because everything about it was grand beyond our imagination.

Bollywood’s obsession with music and mega-budget songs is not new and producers these days do not hesitate in investing an insane amount of money in music albums because their success also indicates the movie’s success at the box-office.
