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.
