Vintage Bollywood posters for sale online of the hit Hindi film, Professor (1962).
This is an actual surviving original vintage Bollywood poster of the 1962 Hindi film that featured the “Elvis Presley of India,” Shammi Kapoor in the lead role opposite actress Kalpana. Produced by F. C. Mehra and directed by Lekh Tandon, Professor also starred Salim Khan, Tun Tun, Randhir and Lalita Pawar in supporting roles.
Printed and circulated during the screening of the film in theaters (somewhere in the 1960s), this old Professor movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Bollywood poster was originally hand painted on canvas by a poster design studio in Bombay. A fabulous hand painted portrait of Shammi Kapoor with his arm raised (taken from an iconic song in the film) is seen prominently on the right. Actress Kalpana appears in a dancing pose on the top of this vintage Bollywood poster. The poster is set against a picturesque mountain background. A photographic still of the couple is seen on the bottom left of this Professor movie poster. The title of the film appears in a striking yellow font in Devanagari Hindi script at the bottom.
The soundtrack album of Professor was composed by ace music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan. The film was remade in Tamil as Nadigan (1990), in Telugu twice as Bhale Mastaru (1969) and again as Peddinti Alludu (1991); and in Kannada as Gopi Krishna. The rights to Professor are owned by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
