3.5 crore spent for Bollywood’s costliest song in Veer
Salman Khan has given a lot of creative contribution to the song of Veer which was shot with a budget of Rs 3.5 crore. Directed by Anil Sharma, Veer is written by Salman himself and also stars a newcomer actress whose name has been kept a secret by the makers of the film along with Sohail Khan and Mithun Chakraborty.
Sources inform, “Salman Khan, Sohail, Mithun and the new starlet participated in a 11 day long marathon shooting schedule for this particular song in a Mumbai studio earlier this month. The song also had around 600 junior artists dancing along with the main stars. Salman’s contribution to the song had begun right from the conceptualisation of it to helping in executing in it all. Salman personally took part in all the discussions with the creative team of the film and the choreographer before the shooting of this song began. He offered valuable suggestions which were accepted by all unanimously. Also, he was present on all 11 days even at times when his part was not being shot. Salman has been extremely passionate about this particular song which he thinks shall be the film’s biggest highlight.”
“With a budget crossing Rs 3 crore this song has become the costliest song over taking a Jodha Akbar song shot on Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai in Karjat’s ND Studios last year.” the source concluded.
Looks like Aamir Khan rubbed off his quest for creative perfection to Salman during the 10 Ka Dum episode they shot together!
