We have seen some extremely expensive dresses in Bollywood before. For instance, each of Madhuri Dixit’s attires in Devdas reportedly cost roughly `15 lakhs and Neeta Lulla’s designer costumes donned by Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan in Jodhaa Akbar were studded with diamonds, kundan and other precious and semi-precious stones.

Each of Ash’s costumes cost roughly `2 lakh. And then of course there is Bebo’s dress in Kambakht Ishq that had been bought from Paris for a whopping $8 million. And now, sources tell us that Reza the costume designer of Kangana Ranaut in her upcoming film Rajjo, has designed a blouse for the actor with crystals. Kangana will be seen wearing that blouse in the song, Zulmi Re Zulmi. Being a film that revolves around the life of a Mujrewali, one does expect elaborate costumes with bling, and Rajjo does not disappoint.

“Kangana’s first dance performance in the movie demanded something elaborate and I designed this choli keeping in mind her dance moves and the embroidery,” says Reza.
However, the itsy-bitsy piece has not come cheap. “The cost of the choli is roughly `2 lakh,” says a source.
