It is not necessary that every film with a big star cast proves to be a superhit. Many times makers bring along a big cast and it turns out to be a disaster. Something similar happened with the 1980 film The Burning Train. The Burning Train was a super flop. In this film, 18 actors including Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Jeetendra, Neetu Kapoor, Hema Malini were seen in lead roles. After having such a big star, the film flopped. Also, the makers had spent money like water on this film. To shoot a scene of this film, a train was also set on fire. Let us tell you some unheard stories related to this film.

A major shooting scene was shot in Bombay Film City. Where the train set was made. Whereas in the original Rajdhani Express, the shoot used to take place at the railway stations of Panvel and Baroda, that too in the night shift from 7 pm to 4 am. This film also had to be shot in Delhi because Rajdhani Express had to be shown leaving Delhi. It became very difficult to shoot this scene because around 1000 people had gathered to watch it. At the same time, 400 junior artists were also put on call for work for this film. Because of this the budget of the film became very high.

The film was completed in 5 years
It takes 70-8 days to complete the shooting of any film but the shooting of The Burning Train was completed in 5 years. The film was shot for 130 days with 5 cameras. Not only this, silver foil suits were brought for the main cast. With all this the film became 4 hours long. Then to reduce it, many songs and scenes had to be removed. Talking about the budget of the film, according to reports this film was made with a budget of Rs 25-30 crores. At the same time, it was able to collect only Rs 6 crore at the box office.
