Bollywood movies often set trends in more ways than one. And, it also goes without saying that the iconic props used in mega movies often get larger-than-life popularity, and it shows at the time of auctions as well. The money collected is then directed towards social causes and non-profit organizations. Here’s a list of iconic Bollywood props that were sold at unbelievable rates at the various auctions.
Khan’s Lagaan was nominated at the Oscars. But, storyline aside, something else from the 2001 movie also made headlines. Yes, we’re talking about the bat of high value. To refresh your memory, Aamir Khan played with a bat during the match against the Britishers. It was a handmade bat that had Khan’s signature as well. Since the movie became a classic of sorts, the bat was later auctioned. And well, someone brought it for Rs 1,56,000 rupees!
The towel step from the song Jeene Ke Hai Chaar Din from the movie Mujhse Shaadi Karogi became so popular that the towel was later put for auction on eBay. Well, it was sold for Rs 1,42,000 rupees! The proceeds were donated to an NGO.
Exotic happens to be Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s second international single. The track gained massive visibility, and so did bright pink-colored Louboutin heels that Chopra Jonas wore, which were eventually auctioned for Rs 2.5 lakh. It is believed that the Quantico actress gave that amount to a campaign titled, ‘Save the Girl’ by UNICEF.
Devdas was one of the most expensive movies to be made in Bollywood. The costumes which Dixit had worn were opulent and expensive. Case in point: the lehenga which she wore in the track, Maar Daala was auctioned for a whopping Rs 3 crore, when it might have originally cost around 5 lakh rupees.
Believe it or not, one of Kumar’s suits weighs more in money than its weight. We’re talking about the one he wears in the film Oh My God, which was later auctioned for an educational institute. And, guess what? The suit in question was sold for a whopping Rs 15 lakh!
Sheikh wore a huge silver ring with a turquoise stone in Umrao Jaan. The movie turned out to be one of the biggest hits in Indian cinema. But, there’s another lesser-known highlight to it: the chunky finger ring worn by Sheikh was eventually auctioned for Rs 96,000 rupees!
