Old Bollywood poster of the romantic Hindi film Laila Majnu (1976) for sale.
This is an actual surviving original old Bollywood poster of the 1976 classic Hindi romance, Laila Majnu. Directed by Harnam Singh Rawail (H.S. Rawail), the film starred Rishi Kapoor and Ranjeeta in lead roles.
Laila Majnu was based on the ancient Arabic folklore of Layla and Majnun.
Printed and circulated during the first release run of the film (mid 1970s), this original Laila Majnu poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Laila Majnu poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by one of the greatest Bollywood poster artists of his time, V.G. Parchure. His printed signature in the name of his art studio “Pamart” is seen on the center right of this old Bollywood poster for sale.
A beautiful hand painted rendition of the two lovers is seen prominently in this old Bollywood poster. Artist V.G. Parchure has chosen a minimalist approach with a focus on realism in designing this old Bollywood poster.
