Mumbai: For a special number  for the film Aiyya starring   Rani Mukerji, the film's co-producers Anurag Kashyap and Viacom 18 incurred a whopping hair and makeup fee of Rs 10 lakh, says a Mumbai Mirror  report.  

Rani wasn't happy with the initial look and got it changed several times.

Her makeup artist Subbu  said,"Rani's look in the song had to have a Middle Eastern touch.

"We used lots of bronze shades and smoky eyes.We changed it around four or five odd times till the look matched Rani's expectations."

The makeup artist added: "We tried nude eyes with a bright mouth. Then we also tried having smoky eyes with a nude face.

"So on and so forth, till we achieved the perfect look. Rani clearly knows what she wants and does not settle for anything less."

Rani's hairstylist Anu Kaushik  said, : "We sat down with Rani and Neeta (Lulla,who had designed the outfits for the song) to plan the look.

"But on the day of the shoot, we were still a bit unsure of certain things. Rani wanted to look perfect and thus we did change the hair and makeup eight to ten times before we got what we wanted."

The report quoted a source as saying: "Several look changes hiked the budget. The makeup and hair bill for the song added up to nearly Rs 10 lakh."

Anurag and Rani remained unavailable for comment.
