Are Bollywood musical numbers in-story or fantasy?

In Bollywood films, should I think of the musical numbers as something that exist in-story -- that is, the characters literally stop talking and break into a dance number, then return to normal -- or as fantasies that exist only in the lead actor's mind? Or would the best way to parse them be as kind of a Greek Chorus meta-comment?

Bollywood music video with men dancing while sitting on the toilets in lockerroom

looking for a Bollywood music video that has men dancing while sitting in toilet stalls--the camera is moving around in a locker room or similar setting and it pans across the tops of the stalls and in each one a guy is sitting AND dancing on the toilet. i know there are a MILLION Bollywood music videos, so this may be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but perhaps someone out there may recognize this one--it certainly is a bit weirder than most of them. i saw it on a monitor in an Indian restaurant, but the waiter didn't know anything about where to find it.

Help me find the name for my new favorite pants

What are these pants (on the girl) called, so that I can I find them/a pattern for them? From the Bollywood routine on So You Think You Can Dance last night. The slit and the billoweyness when she spins are the key aspects of why I love these.
