Vintage Indian poster for sale of the old Hindi film Badhti Ka Naam Dadhi (1974).
This is an actual surviving old Indian movie poster for sale of the 1974 comedy drama that starred the most successful playback singer in Indian cinema, Kishore Kumar in the lead role. The film was directed by Kishore Kumar himself and he even composed its music.
Badhti Ka Naam Dadhi also starred Kishore Kumar's elder brother Ashok Kumar. K.N. Singh, I.S. Johar, Rajesh Khanna, Asrani and Bindu played supporting roles in the film.
The film revolved around a hilarious plot wherein a multimillionaire decides to leave his entire wealth to the person who has the longest beard.
