Simrit Brar - designer of Bollywood posters
August 5, 2006, received from Simrit Brar
Poster by Simrit Brar for the movie Lagaan (2001)
Simrit Brar reminded me of a less well known part of the poster world. She writes:
I wanted to draw your attention to the work I do. I worked as one of
the leading poster designers in Bombay with the film industry
Bollywood for some years. I thought some of that work
would be interesting for your site. Bollywood is the film industry in
India and it produces the highest number of films every year. There
are many idiosyncrasies in the form of our cinema as well ... each film
has romance and song and dance sequences. The film stars in India are
the biggest celebrities, they have temples built for them too!
Some of her work, including the poster at left, was shown at the Victoria & Albert
museum in London in an exhibition
Cinema India, the art of Bollywood in 2002,
representing the new era of Indian cinema and posters in the last 25 years.
The traveling exhibition is still touring the world.
