Old Bollywood poster for sale of the hit romantic Hindi film, Kanyadaan (1968).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1968 Hindi film that featured Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh in lead roles.
Printed and circulated shortly after the first release run of the film (late 1960s), this old Bollywood poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Bollywood poster was originally hand painted on canvas by a small time poster design studio in Delhi. A large quirky side profile of Asha Parekh is seen predominantly in the poster. Smaller portraits of Shashi Kapoor and Om Prakash appear at the bottom. The choice of green and yellow shades in the design gives this old Bollywood poster a very eye catching appearance.
Kanyadaan’s music composed by the legendary duo Shankar Jaikishan with lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri became a rage throughout the nation. Tracks from the film (most notably “Likhe Jo Khat Tujhe” sung by Mohammed Rafi) are fondly remembered and played till today.
