The best film sets from Sanjay Leela Bhansali that put us in awe

Subtlety is not what Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for. Larger-than-life films, opulence, and grandeur are what set his movies apart. Bhansali’s film sets have gone down in the golden history of Indian Cinema for being visually spectacular, a feat that only he can dare to accomplish. Here are some examples of his stellar work. 

1. Devdas (2002)

Featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, and Madhuri Dixit is hands down one of the greatest films ever made in the history of Indian cinema, not just in terms of the performance, but also for the movie sets that were built with utmost perfection. From Paro’s haveli to Chandramukhi’s kotha, everything about the movie was brilliant, considering it was made over a decade ago.

2. Saawariya (2007)
In the film, most of the set we saw was inspired by paintings, especially Kashmiri, Rajasthani, and a lot of works by Van Gough. A lot of time was spent recreating boats, statues, snow, fog, and even white peacocks and pigeons. Each set of the film, made at a budget of over Rs 40 crore, took nearly 25 days to build with more than 250 people working on it at a time.

3. Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013)
Featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, the film is another classic example of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s vision. From the stunning havelis to the vibrant streets where people were, everything was brilliantly picturized to portray the authentic beauty of Gujarat; only all this was reportedly shot in Mumbai. 

4. Bajirao Mastani (2015)
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a master of visually appealing movies that are remembered for their intricate details and jaw-dropping depiction of every scene. The stunning Aaina Mahal was one of the most talked about aspects of the film. About 8-9 years of research went into the creation of 23 magnificent sets, and it took a team of 550 people to make this vision a creation!

5. Padmaavat (2018)
From elaborate sets to the minute details in the costumes, everything about Padmaavat is creatively rich. But due to the vandalism and protests, Bhansali recreated the fort in Mumbai, with designers taking inspiration from old Rajasthani miniature paintings for reference. And the set that we saw in the film turned out even better than the original one.
