Talking about the palaces, forts and deserts of Rajasthan, they have been preferred for shootings by so many filmmakers. But the fee of using these locations is very high. The filmmakers have to pay a hefty amount to shoot even for a single day. Shoot at Amber Palace costs Rs 2 lakh a day while Rs 3 lakh per day for the outer part.

However, the filmmakers are required to pay a fixed amount of the money to Rajasthan authorities so that the damages can be recovered. It is also planned by the authorities so that the filmmakers will make sure that there will be no damage to the monument. In fact, the filmmakers will have to ensure the safety of the tourists.
