Old Amitabh movie poster for sale of the superhero fantasy Hindi film, Ajooba (1991).
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster for sale of the 1991 superhero flick that was produced and directed by Shashi Kapoor and featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (somewhere in the early 1990s), this old Amitabh movie poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Amitabh Bachchan poster features a stunning photographic collage and was designed originally on a board by Bollywood poster artist Ravi.
The superstar is seen prominently at the center of this Amitabh Bachchan poster in a superhero gladiator avatar wearing a cape and his trademark bandit mask. The title Ajooba appears at the bottom in interesting typography. A fiery background gives this old Amitabh movie poster a stunning appearance.
Ajooba was co-directed by Soviet filmmaker Gennadi Vasilyev and produced in association with Gorky Studios in Moscow. A Russian language dub of the film was released in the Soviet Union as Vozvrashcheniye Bagdadskogo Vora. It is widely believed that superstar Amitabh Bachchan worked in the film for free, as a token of his gratitude for his closest friend and mentor Shashi Kapoor.
