About Bollywood Poster
Movie Posters are rare collectible items that reflect the movie culture of a bypassed time. They were a widespread form of promotions and marketing of movies before digitalization. Movie posters were created to promote movies and also create general curiosity and excitement among the audience. Over time the demand for movie posters has taken a toll because the collection of these original memorabilia has become very prevalent. One of the biggest reasons for the hike in the demand of movie posters is that they were mostly handmade and painted. Many of these movie poster artists have been acclaimed in the present. A typical Bollywood poster from the 60s or 70s would have the hero and the villain in highlight. The 60s and 70s saw Bollywood movies running successfully even overseas.
