Quirky hand painted Bollywood poster of the hit Hindi film, Chitchor (1976) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster of the 1976 romantic film that featured Amol Palekar and Zarina Wahab in lead roles.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1970s), this vintage Bollywood movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
The poster features somewhat symmetrical hand drawn faces of the lead couple, with a small figure of the supporting actor in between the two. The lettering on the top of the poster announces the film as a “Fresh fascinating romantic musical.”
Chitchor (sometimes spelled as Chit Chor) is a 1976 romantic musical Hindi film starring Amol Palekar & Zarina Wahab in lead roles. An adaptation of a popular Bengali story, Chittachakor by Subodh Ghosh, the film became a box office hit.
The film’s success spawned a remake in 2003, ‘Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon’ starring Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan.
