Shahrukh Khan Devdas photo poster for sale.

This is an actual surviving original Bollywood poster of the 2002 blockbuster Hindi film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali that starred the “King of Bollywood” Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role along with Madhuri Dixit and Miss World 1994, Aishwarya Rai.

Based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s 1917 novel by the same name, Devdas (2002) is the third Hindi film to be made on the subject and the first to be made in color. Jackie Shroff, Kirron Kher, Dina Pathak, Milind Gunaji, Smita Jaykar and Tiku Talsania played supporting roles in this cult classic.

Devdas was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and won a staggering five National Awards and ten Filmfare Awards, tying with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge for the most Filmfare Awards won by a single film. Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai all won Filmfare Awards for their stellar performances in the film.

At the time of its release, Devdas (2002) was the most expensive Bollywood film ever produced. It was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Language Film and was also India’s submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Devdas was also listed in “The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema” in 2010 by Empire magazine.

Time Magazine selected Devdas (2002) as the best film released in 2002 (worldwide) and subsequently also included it in its prestigious top 10 movies of the millennium worldwide, making this Shahrukh Khan Devdas photo poster, highly collectible!

Printed and circulated during the first release of the film in theaters (somewhere in 2002), this Devdas movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

Superstar Shahrukh Khan is seen holding an empty bottle of alcohol in his hand while lying down in a stunning close up that spans the entire width of the poster. His eyes give away the pain and emptiness suffered by his character who is heartbroken in love.

Typography used in this original Devdas poster is a mix of both Devanagari Hindi as well as English. The title appears in a stunning yellow font in Devanagari Hindi with a beautiful motif drawn below it. The subtitle of the film, “A Grand Saga of Timeless Love” is seen written on the top in English.

The film’s central character Devdas (Shah Rukh Khan), essays the role of a wealthy law graduate who descends into alcoholism when his parents oppose his decision to marry his love interest Paro (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). Heartbroken, he turns to a prostitute for solace – Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit Nene).

The soundtrack album of Devdas (2002) was composed by Ismail Darbar, his second collaboration with Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (2000). It became a rage throughout the nation upon it’s release. Songs from the album such as “Maar Daala” sung by Kavita Krishnamurthy & KK and “Dola Re Dola” sung by Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shreya Ghoshal & KK are played till today as well as watched on video for their stunning dance performances.
