Synonymous with larger-than-life cinema and grandeur, Sanjay Leela Bhansali outdoes himself and has created what might be his most extravagant set this far.

The filmmaker has recreated Aena Mahal, on the lines of the mirror covered Mughal-e-Azam set and is the most expensive set so far after the cult film.

The set which took over 45 days to create, has been designed by Sujit Sriram and Saloni with the mirrors being called from Jaipur, all handpicked by Sanjay himself.

Over 20,000 intricately designed mirrors have been used to put the set together. Special karigars from jaipur were summoned to work on the embedding of the mirrors to maintain authenticity.The massive set measures 12,500 sq feet. What's even more awe inspiring is that one angle of the frame reflects in the 20,000 mirrors.

The set also boasts of 13 chandeliers which have to lit up every time with candles and not your traditional lighting.
