The bottom of this hand drawn poster shows smaller figures of Raj Babbar, Kimi Katkar and Sonam.
This vintage Bollywood film poster is a two sheeter. Two sheet posters comprise two separate individual single sheet posters measuring approximately 40″x30″ inches each. When pasted together they line up perfectly and together form one single two sheet poster. In the image provided, there may be a slight gap visible between the two – as the images of the top and bottom half have been photographed individually and then joined together digitally. When framed or pasted, there will be no gap visible between the two sheets and the appearance of the poster would be seamless – i.e. just like a single sheet poster.
Old Amitabh poster of the superhero fantasy Hindi film, Ajooba (1991) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster for sale of the 1991 superhero flick that was produced and directed by Shashi Kapoor and featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Printed and circulated a few years after the original first release of the film (somewhere in the mid 1990s), this old Amitabh poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Amitabh poster features a stunning photographic collage in which the superstar is seen in his superhero avatar. Smaller still photos of Rishi Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Dimple Kapadia and Sonam are seen at the bottom.
This poster has been graded as ★ As Is due to a small hole as seen clearly in the photograph (on the bottom left of the poster over actress Dimple Kapadia’s face). Please study the accompanying image carefully before making a purchase.
Ajooba was co-directed by Soviet filmmaker Gennadi Vasilyev and produced in association with Gorky Studios in Moscow. A Russian language dub of the film was released in the Soviet Union as Vozvrashcheniye Bagdadskogo Vora. It is widely believed that superstar Amitabh Bachchan worked in the film for free, as a token of his gratitude for his closest friend and mentor Shashi Kapoor.
