Old Bollywood movie poster of the hit Hindi film Shaan (1980) for sale.
Featured here for sale is a reissue Bollywood poster of the 1980 classic Hindi film which featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1990s / early 2000s), this Shaan poster was designed for publicity of a local re-release of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Amitabh poster features two photographic stills of the superstar. Amitabh Bachchan is seen holding a gun along with Shashi Kapoor on the top and again on the center of this Shaan poster. Smaller photographic stills of supporting actor Shatrughan Sinha and Bollywood’s infamous villain Kulbhushan Kharbanda (who played the memorable character of Shakaal in the film) are seen on the bottom of this Shaan poster.
Shaan is a 1980 blockbuster Hindi film directed by Ramesh Sippy (director of the epic film Sholay). Despite having an amazing star cast, the film failed to match the success of Sholay (1975). RD Burman’s music in the film however ensured that the film became a commercial success.
Songs like “Yamma Yamma”, “Pyar Karne Waale” & “Jaanu Meri Jaan” went on to become a rage throughout the nation and are still played today.
