Bollywood booms

Conferro Auctions to sell Bollywood posters at The Westbury

 

New auction house Conferro Auctions are to sell a collection of Bollywood film posters and LPs at The Westbury Hotel on the 29th November.

 

Amongst the 142 lots on offer, the highlights include a poster for the “curry Western” Sholay. With an estimate of £2,000 to £2,500, this 40” by 30” advertisement comes as a lot of three posters and 3 LPs and evokes this flaming success in iconic lettering that truly evokes the embers that “refuse to die out”.

 

A poster for Lagaan, a film about a group of Indian villagers who challenge their British masters to a game of cricket in order to settle a dispute over taxes, comes with another for Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and is priced at £500 to £1,000.

Our final choice is the poster for Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi. Starring Sir Ben Kingsley, this is probably the most recognisable image to British attendees of this auction and comes as a lot of two posters and one LP.
