In the 1970s and 1980s, several Russian films were exported by Russia’s premier film distributor, Sovexportfilm to India. These films were locally dubbed in Hindi and released in theaters with Indian film titles. Posters for these films were also localized to suit the Indian flavor and were hand painted by leading Bollywood poster painters.
