Shooting a song in one take is a major task and had been done just
once in Bollywood for the song 'Roop Tere Mastana' from the film
Aradhana starring Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. But
filmmaker Wilson Louis recently accomplished the task for his film
Lonavala Khandala Ghat and shot a song in one take.
It was a complete three and a half minute song that was being
shot in one take. The taxing part was shooting in outdoors, in a
jungle near Khandala. Another challenge was getting the lip sync
right. But after three nights of rehearsals, Louis took the final
shot at Khandala and it was done in one take.
The song is called 'Kismat hai zandu to kya karega pandu' and is
sung by Baba Sehgal. It revolves around five characters who are
exploring an unknown jungle.
