Directed by R. K. Nayyar, Love In Simla was a musical comedy inspired by the 1938 English film, Jane Steps Out. The film’s story is set in the hill station “Shimla,” which is a popular holiday destination in Himachal Pradesh, India.

This old Bollywood movie poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by a poster design studio in Bombay. Hand painted portraits of Joy Mukherjee and Sadhana are seen prominently in the poster set against a picturesque backdrop of Shimla.

The title of the film is seen hand painted in striking red font with a yellow border, giving it an extremely eye catching appeal.
Love In Simla was released in 1963 in Soviet Union. The film witnessed over 35 million viewers, making it one of the top 20 most successful Indian films to be released in Soviet Union.
