The Indian film industry is a multi-million industry and a lot goes into making a film. It is not simply coming up with an idea for a project and casting actors for the roles. In fact, it is much more than that and it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and of course money. There’s always been a buzz about how much money the producers spent on the movie sets/ location shoots, payment of actors and on costumes for the characters. It is a painfully expensive process but irrespective of that, we have a lot of big-budget movies coming up from time to time. Here’s a list of some the most expensive costumes ever worn by our B-Town celebs for their movies.
