Well it"s nothing new for a production house to set up lavish sets at an exorbitant cost, as when the film releases they can easily cash back on the costs with the box-office moolah. Which is why, it did not pinch the producers of Ranbir Kapoor"s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani to build up a whole city for the film in Ooty, Tamil Nadu and later break it down to pieces. But what comes as a surprise is the cost involved in bringing down the sets.
According to reliable sources, the production house shelled out a cool sum of Rs. 20,00,000/- (Rupees Twenty Lakhs) to bring the sets down. Our little birdie tells us, “The beautiful set of Ranbir Kapoor"s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani turned into dust at the cost of some 20 lakhs."
Well that"s not too bad considering the film is still raking in big money from selling satellite rights to television channels apart from cashing in major moolah at the box-office!
