Salman Khan’s upcoming film Tiger 3 has music sequences in it, as all his films do. It’s what gets his fans pumped up.

But one specific song is getting a lot of attention, because it apparently cost Rs 3 crore to shoot, and was made all the way in scenic Cappadocia, Turkey (you know, the place with all the hot air balloons). With that kind of moolah, you could make an entire movie, as these examples prove.

1. Khosla Ka Ghosla

Dibakar Banerjee’s iconic debut film still enjoys massive popularity, and it was all done within a budget of Rs 3 crore. Who needs Cappadocia when you have Mumbai?


2. Bheja Fry

Yet another sleeper hit, this film’s overall budget was Rs 1.5 crore – literally half the amount that Sallu and company apparently spent on a song. A song!

8. Do Dooni Chaar

It’s hard to imagine that a film starring Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor would be low budget, but this movie was actually made on just Rs 2 crore.


9. Bombay Boys

This 1998 cult comedy featured everyone from Rahul Bose to Naveen Andrews and Naseeruddin Shah. The craziest part? It was filmed on a budget of Rs 70 lakhs.


I wonder if Salman’s going to see this and feel bad or proud.
