Indian cinema and music are inextricably linked. Can you imagine our movies without music? It’d be like having a body without a soul. No matter how much you criticise the performers for dancing around trees or sprinting across snow-covered mountains in these songs, they are unquestionably attractive.
Even our filmmakers take these songs seriously, which is why a large sum of money is spent on filming the tracks and, on occasion, enlisting the most bankable celebrity.
As a result, the budgets of Bollywood films are steadily growing. Initially, film budgets were measured in lakhs. It has now risen to crores and billions of rupees. Now that film budgets have skyrocketed, it’s only natural that film song budgets would rise as well.
You’ve probably heard the music and then realised it’s being performed in a mesmerising location. Only then do you realize that this song’s budget accounts for a significant portion of the entire film’s budget.
When a song is released, sometimes it is a song that gains the most attention, and the movie gains some attention as a result of the song’s popularity. That’s because movie producers invest a large sum of money on songs because they know if they didn’t earn from the movie, they would definitely earn from songs.
