Aan Milo Sajna
Rajesh Khanna movie poster of the super hit old Bollywood film, Aan Milo Sajna (1970) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster of the 1970 film that featured Rajesh Khanna, widely known as the original (first) superstar of Indian cinema, in the lead role opposite Asha Parekh.
Printed and circulated a few years subsequent to the debut release of the film (somewhere in the 1970s), this hand drawn artwork movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film’s local release in Delhi but never ended up being used.
This old Hindi movie poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas in slightly larger than the usual half sheet size. It measures 36″x24″ inches, making this rare vintage print very collectible.
This Rajesh Khanna poster features a brilliant hand painted portrait of actress Asha Parekh dressed in an evening gown with a plunging neckline. Her hair is tied into a stylish bun, which made her a fashion icon at the time of the film’s release. Superstar Rajesh Khanna is seen on her lap. The poster is minimalist, set against a blue background. The hand drawn faces, although quirky in their design (which is typical of old school Bollywood poster painters and art studios in Delhi), capture the romance between the two actors very well. Typography used in this poster is English as well as a translation in Devanagari Hindi.
Aan Milo Sajna was a musical romance written by Sachin Bhowmick and directed by Mukul Dutt. The film’s supporting cast included Vinod Khanna, Rajendra Nath, Nirupa Roy and Junior Mehmood.
The music of the film was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and lyrics were penned by Anand Bakshi. The film was declared a super hit at the box office and the song “Acha to Hum Chalte Hain” became a rage throughout the nation, fondly remembered and played till today.
Aan Milo Sajna is counted among the 17 consecutive hit films of Rajesh Khanna between 1969 and 1971.
