The sum of 8 dollars refers to the number of dollars, or an equivalent foreign currency, that an Indian was allowed, by Government rules, to obtain by converting rupees into foreign currencies.

It was India's first film to be released in 70mm and was extensively shot all around the world, as the title suggests.
