Old Bollywood movie poster of the super hit Hindi film Sargam (1979) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster for sale of the 1979 Hindi film that starred Rishi Kapoor and Jaya Prada in lead roles.
Sargam marked the Bollywood debut of actress Jaya Prada (who played the role of a mute dancer in the film), turning her into an overnight sensation.
Printed and circulated during the first release of the film (late 1970s), this old Bollywood poster for sale 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 the most expensive and sought after Bollywood poster painter of his time, Diwakar Karkare – the owner of Studio Diwakar.
Diwakar’s printed signature is seen on the bottom right hand corner of this old Bollywood poster. In this old movie poster, master Bollywood poster painter Diwakar has chosen a dramatic approach to paint the background. Musical notes are seen crisscrossing hand painted figures of Jaya Prada in various dance poses.
Rishi Kapoor is seen playing a tambourine in the center of this old Bollywood poster from the iconic song in the film, “Dafliwale Dafli Baja.” Sung by Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar, the song is fondly remembered and played till today.
