Extremely rare hand painted Bollywood poster of the classic Hindi comedy, Johnny Walker (1957) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster of the 1957 Bollywood comedy that featured brothers Johnny and Tony Walker.
Johnny Walker is regarded as one of Bollywood’s greatest comedians. In total, he acted in over 300 films in an illustrious career spanning over four decades. His real name was Badruddin Kazi. The name Johnny Walker was given to Kazi by noted filmmaker Guru Dutt. Reportedly, Dutt was so impressed by Kazi’s act as a drunkard that he decided to give him his infamous screen name after the popular brand of Scotch whiskey, “Johnny Walker.”
Printed and circulated during the first first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1950s), this Hindi comedy movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Indian comedy movie poster features stunning full length portraits of Johnny Walker and Shyama. Walker is seen wearing a monocle in this funny Hindi movie poster.
