Raveena Tandon mentioned that while Bollywood employs 200 people for a task, South Indian filmmakers accomplish the same work with just 9 people.

During an interview, the 49-year-old actress shared her experience of working on the 1995 film Taqdeerwala.

The Patna Shukla star recalled that despite South cinema's limited budget, they didn't lack anything; instead, it made them more efficient and mindful of their resources. 

She said, “We shot five songs in Mauritius with a crew of only 9 people, no light men, no generators, no lights, nothing. They shot the songs with two baby lights and only reflectors, the ones with the silver foil."

"That’s how all the songs were shot and you look at the quality of those songs."

Raveena went on to claim that the south crew “used to work so effortlessly and effectively on a low budget and did great work”.

The Andaz Apna Apna actress recalled shooting outdoors for a Hindu song, where the makers deployed nearly 200 people, making her question the stark difference.

She said, “When I would shoot in Mumbai and we would go outdoors from here, to Switzerland or some other place, 200 people would go along. I used to say why do you need so many people when we can do all of this work with 10 people?”.
