Prabhas is all set for a theatrical release. Helmed by Prashanth Neel, the action extravaganza drops in theaters on December 22. The film releases a day after Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki releases in theaters on 21. Looking at this massive clash prediction for the winner is quite a tough task. Moreover, since Salaar is a very expensive film. In fact, only one scene of the film costs a lot more than the budget of most mid-scale films.

However, overhyping action and stunt sequences are things cinema loves to splurge on. Over the last decade, more than 100 crores have been spent on just 4 – 5 major action sequences in big action films. This includes films by Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and others.

But guess who is the king of the most expensive scenes in Indian Cinema? Well, it is none other than our Baahubali actor who rules the list of most expensive scenes with three major sequences. In fact, the cost of these three sequences itself is more than 100 crore.

Check out some of the most expensive scenes and the budget spent on shooting them:
