Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the blockbuster Hindi film, Junglee (1961).
This is an actual surviving original vintage Bollywood poster of the 1961 Hindi film that featured the “Elvis Presley of India,” Shammi Kapoor in the lead role opposite actress Saira Banu.
Junglee marked the debut of actress Saira Banu’s career and earned her a Filmfare Award nomination for Best Actress.
The film featured chartbusters such as “Aai Aai Ya Sukoo Sukoo” and “Yahoo! Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahen” sung by Mohammed Rafi, making this Junglee movie poster highly collectible!
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release run of the film (late 1960s / early 1970s), this Junglee movie poster was originally designed for publicity of a subsequent release of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Bollywood poster was originally designed on canvas by a poster design studio in Delhi. The poster features a stunning rendition of Shammi Kapoor in his iconic “freestyle” dancing pose on the top. The opening lyric of the cult song, “Yahoo!” appears written in bold prominently on the top along with the message “Junglee is back,” signifying the re-release of the film. A snowy background is seen behind Shammi Kapoor in this Junglee movie poster.
The soundtrack of Junglee is fondly remembered and played even today. Songs like “Ehsaan Tera Hoga,” “Aai Aai Ya Sukoo Sukoo” and “Yahoo! Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahen” have become timeless classics.
