Cinema and music in India are intrinsically interwoven. What would our movies be like if they didn’t have music? It would be the equivalent of having a body without a soul. Whatever you think of the performers’ dancing around trees and dashing across snow-covered mountains in these tunes, they are undeniably appealing.
Even our filmmakers take these songs seriously, which is why they spend a lot of money filming them and, on occasion, engaging the most bankable star. As a result, Bollywood film costs are gradually increasing. Film budgets were once measured in lakhs. It’s currently in the crores and billions of rupees range. It’s only inevitable that, with film expenditures so high, film song expenses would soar as well. You’ve most likely heard the song and then realized it’s being played in a captivating setting. Only then do you realize that the budget for this song is a big chunk of the overall budget for the picture.
When a song is published, it is occasionally the song that receives the most attention, and as a result of the song’s fame, the movie receives some notice. That’s because movie producers spend a lot of money on songs because they know that if they don’t make money from the movie, they’ll make money from the songs.
