Here are some of the cellphones that most of us will never buy, but you can bet your sweet life some celebrity somewhere (maybe even in Bollywood) will. No talk about (possibly non-existent) specs, let's just roll our eyes at the images.
1. GoldVish, Geneva
These Swiss luxury phones are well...bejewelled.
The Goldvish Revolution with a built in watch movement. I can't confirm but apparently it is priced at approximately 50000 USD or Rs. 22 lakhs
And the Goldvish Le Million touted as the most expensive mobile phone in the world - it actually costs slightly more than a million dollars.
And finally, the slightly more normal looking Goldvish Illusion, which you can buy if you prefer, in yellow gold, with a crocodile leather back inlay, and several choices of colors
If you really crave this, the Google search throws up some Chinese sites offering cheap replicas starting at 2000 dollars.
2) TAG Heur Meridist
The Swiss engineered phone comes in at a relatively modest 7000 USD (Rs. 3.2 Lakh)

You have a choice of rubber, alligator skin or calfskin for the back cover

The latest from Nokia;s high-end stable is the USD 7500 Constellation Ayksta which is a flip phone. Images below are from Gear Diary
Vertu also has a Signature collection in its exclusive store in Japan. At approximately USD 210,000 (Rs. ten lakhs each), the signature collection has a phone for each season.
