6 Iconic Songs From Hindi Cinema That Were Shot In A Single Take

Imagine where would we be if there wasn’t any music in Bollywood! And songs also add to the shooting days for a movie. Making sure that everyone is dancing to the tune and coordinating well isn’t child’s play! However, there are some songs which were shot in a single take and this, in fact, became their biggest USP! It is unbelievable how their teamwork and timing was on point and they deserve a big applause!

1. Roop Tera Mastana: Aradhana

The sizzling number from the 1969 Aradhana was the first song to be shot under single take. And it is surprising how Sharmila Tagore and Rajesh Khanna could muster up so much chemistry in a single go!

2. Barson Ke Baad: Anjaam

While for Madhuri Dixit such things are a cake walk, the track from Anjaam was also taken in a single shot. And this became a big highlight of the song when the movie came out.

3. Chalein Jaise Hawaein: Main Hoon Naa

When Farah Khan decided to do Main Hoon Naa, this was one thing she was committed to doing as this was one out of the box idea! And we think Amrita Rao did a fabulous job.

4. I Want To Make Love To You: Aitraaz

Not only did Sunidhi leave us stunned with this number, but Priyanka Chopra too was a sensuous sight playing her first negative role at such an early stage. Although a dream sequence, the song was taken in a single shot, because love and lust don’t take breaks.

5. Ae Chhori Zara Nach Ke Dikha: Cash

This is one very difficult performance that was pulled perfectly by the ‘Cash’ stars, Zayed Khan, Esha Deol, Dia Mirza, Riteish Deshmukh and Shamita Shetty. Also, special mention to the cinematographer who created this magical number!

6. Gallan Goodiyaan: Dil Dhadakne Do

The multi-starrer directorial of Zoya Akhtar was not just an amazing story but the fact that this song was taken in a single shot with so many people is simply unbelievable. That’s too much coordination folks!

Are there any other songs that you know which were shot in a single take?
