Amitabh Bachchan film poster for sale.
This is an actual surviving original Bollywood poster of the hit Hindi film Khud-Daar (1982).
Directed by Ravi Tandon, Khud-Daar starred the biggest superstar in Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan along with Sanjeev Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Parveen Babi, Bindiya Goswami and Tanuja.
Printed and circulated during the screening of the film in theaters (somewhere in the early 1980s), this Khuddar poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Khud-Daar was completed and released in 1982 – the year that saw five other record breaking releases starring superstar Amitabh Bachchan; namely Namak Halaal, Shakti, Satte Pe Satta, Bemisaal and Desh Premee.
The exact release date of Khud-Daar however worked to it’s advantage. The film was released during the month when Amitabh was hospitalized after a critical accident on the sets of Coolie. As such, the film ran to packed houses and became one of the highest grossing movies of 1982.
This Amitabh Bachchan film poster features the superstar in a stunning hand painted portrait at the bottom. He is seen again in a smaller hand painted rendition on the top, kicking a villain. Hand painted faces of actors Sanjeev Kumar and Vinod Mehra are seen alongside on the top of this Amitabh Bachchan film poster. Actress Parveen Babi is seen in a photographic still at the bottom left of this Khuddar poster. A taxi driver badge that has the number 1678 is seen dangling from the top center of this vintage Bollywood poster.
The soundtrack album of Khud-Daar was composed by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri. It was a stellar success at the time of the film’s release. Songs from the film such as “Disco 82” and “Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain Ki I Love You” sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar became a rage throughout the nation and are fondly remembered and played till date.
“Mach Gaya Shor” (originally recorded in Amitabh Bachchan’s voice and later re-recorded in Kishore Kumar’s voice) was another popular track from the film. During shooting of the song “Mach Gaya Shor,” Amitabh Bachchan tried to break the earthen pot (matki) with his head, causing a cut on his forehead which required several stitches.
Khud-Daar was remade in Tamil as Padikkadhavan and in Telugu as Driver Babu.
