Old Bollywood poster of the award winning cult film, Salaam Bombay! (1988) for sale.

Printed and circulated somewhere during the early release of the film (Late 1980s / Early 1990s), this old Bollywood movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This photographic Bollywood poster features a large close up photograph of Nana Patekar on the left. The young prostitute who is forced into the flesh trade, “Sola Saal (Sixteen year old)” is seen at the bottom of this old Bollywood poster.
